A. Whitney Carr 

Was born August 22, 1825, in Catnillus, Onondag-a county. New York. He passed his 
early life on his father's farm, but, being- early thrown upon his own resources by the 
failure of his father, he engaged in many activities. Whether as teacher, clerk or 
laborer, hard, persistent work has characterized Mr. Carr. 

In his forty-ninth year he married a Miss Isabelle Thompson of New Jersey. They 
had no children. Mrs. Carr died in 1893. 

Mr. Carr's school education has been very meager. Since twelve years of age he has 
been to school but eight months. It was his intention at one time to go through Oberlin 
College where he attended three months, but in his work to obtain money for this pur- 
pose his activities were directed into other channels. 

The school of life has trained and educated Mr. Carr broadly and liberally. After 
the acquirement of considerable means through trading largely he has devoted himself 
to thought and reading. He is broad-minded and liberal in all matters of public policy 
and polity. 

In 1874 he promulgated a plan for a University along lines far in advance of present 
conditions, in which he showed a nice appreciation of the needs and spirit of the times. It 
was through this plan that Mr. Carr became interested in the University of Iowa. 

Mr. Carr wrote letters to most of the leading universities of this country inquiring 
into their courses of instruction, methods of study and in fact into the whole course and 
conduct of these universities. In answer to his letters the University of Iowa came 
nearest to his idea of the proper university and showed greatest progressiveness along 
the lines urged in his plan of 1874. As a result Mr. Carr generously donated $50,000 to 
the University. This fund has been set aside by the board of regents as the A. Whitney 
Carr Free Scholarship Fund. 

Although the University of Iowa does not meet the plan of a university suggested by 
Mr. Carr in all details, yet in most of its general aspects it does. Mr. Carr urges entire 
voluntaryism in the government of students and in their selection of studies, manual 
labors in schools, instructors entirely independent as regards remuneration for services, 
no fixed periods for examinations and courses so arranged that students may enter any 
class at any time. These are some of the more important recommendations in his plan. 

As may be seen the general conception is broad and liberal, and, indeed, Mr. Carr's 
whole career and his individual acts mark him as a man particularly free from any nar- 
row dogma or personal prejudice. On matters of public welfare — such as currency and 
taxation, the labor question and women's rights — Mr. Carr has expressed himself frankly 
and wisely. In all these matters he takes the common sense view and is thoroughly 
American in his attitude toward them. 

The University of Iowa appreciates the honor shown it in the gift of Mr. Carr. The 
students of the university feel a pardonable pride in their alma mater as a result of this 
recognition of her virtues. Those students who are to come later and who are to be ben- 
efited by Mr. Carr's gift will ever have a deep sense of respect and gratitude for Mr. 
Carr, and by his precept and example will be stimulated to know the truth and do the 
right, as he has known and done them.

LeGrand Powers 

LeGrand Powers was born at Preston, N. Y., 
July 21, 1847. After two years at Tufts College, 
Boston, he entered the University of Iowa, gradu- 
ating in the class of '72. Upon graduation, Mr. 
Powers took charge of a Unitarian school at Mitch- 
ellville, Iowa, which position he resigned two 
years later to engage in the active work of the 
Ministry. After several years as pastor of Uni- 
tarian churches in Joliet, Oak Park, (a suburb of 
Chicago,) and Minneapolis, he was appointed Com- 
missioner of Labor in Minnesota. When he had 
served for eight years as Commissioner of Labor he 
Le GRAND POWERS. was made Chief Statistician in charge of Agricul- 

ture at Washington, which position he now holds. 

Probably Mr. Powers has framed more bills which have been enacted into labor laws 
than any other individual in the country. Mr. Powers is author of the Child Labor Law, 
the Factory Inspection Law and a law for the regulation of bake shops which has been 
copied by nearly every State in the Union. His statistical publications have attracted 
the attention of public men in all parts of the United States and Europe. 

William Bayard Craig, D.D.. LL.D. 
Chancellor William Bayard Craig of Drake University, was born in St. John, N. B. 
He came to the United States in his eighteenth year; entered the University of Iowa in 
1868 and was graduated in 1872. In '72 he entered 
Yale Divinity School at which institution 
George E. MacLean was then a prominent and 
important looking upper-classman. Upon gradu- 
ation from the Yale Divinity School, Mr. Craig be- 
came pastor of the Christian Church at Iowa City. 
After several years at the latter place he accepted 
a charge at Denver where he remained fourteen 
years and built two large churches. Failing health 
required a change of climate and he spent several 
winters at San Antonio, Texas. In 1897 he was 
called to be Chancellor of Drake University and 
since that date the institution has been making 
greater progress than ever before. Chancellor 
Craig received the degree of LL. D., from Colorado 
University and D. D. from Yale Divinity school.

S. LauraL Ensign 

A. B., 1876; B. D., 1878; A. M., 1879.

entered upon her chosen vocation. Two years as teacher 
and principal in the Cedar Falls High School; fourteen 
years in the State Normal School; four years in Stanley 
Hall, Minneapolis; and nearly five years in the Girls 
Latin School of Baltimore, completes a quarter of a cen- 
tury of constant and thoroughly successful work. As 
Normal School teacher, instructor in Institutes, and 
Author of Outlines of Study in History and Geography, 
Miss Ensign has left the impress of her strong person- 
ality on Iowa schools. 

A student always, her knowledge is enriched by 
S. i^AURA ENSIGN. definite graduate work. Two summer sessions at Chau- 

tauqua, one at Harvard, and six months at Yale, supplemented with vacation travel, 
studying the cities of the East and West, the Yosemite and National Park and the Old 
World -were all golden days for her and through her brightened school life for many a

"In thim days," — began Jimmy, as 
he loaded his clay pipe and fumbled in 
his pocket for a match,— "In thim days 
they wuz afther havin' chapel in the 
top iv the Library Buildin' where the 
books is kept at prisint. The rule s 
wuz that thera ez come late wuz 
locked out an' called up before the 
prisidint f 'r not bein' there on toime. 
Yis, sor, iv'ry wan iv 'em had to at- 
tind chapel, an' about eight iva morn- 
in' yez'ud see the divils runnin' from 
all directions, tryin' to get in afore 
the door closed. 

"Were you required to attend 
chapel also?" we asked. "Dom bit iv 
it," replied Jimmy warmly. "They 
has no conthrol over me! Indade its 
meself that's been on the faculty ez 
long ez anny iv em. Wud yez belave 
it? Oi been here since siventy-fouhr! 
Yis, sor, thim wuz the toimes afore 
the stone walks wuz put down. The 
cintral walk in them days wuz made iv tar, and iv a noon whin the sun wuz hot the 
dom thing wud be afther meltin' and' runnin' down the strate. 

"Did the Sophomores ever paint the walks in those days, Jimmy?" we asked. 
At the suggestion of Sophomores, Jimmy was uneasy. He arose from his customary 
seat at the base of the Old Capitol pillar and made a tour of inspection through the cam- 
pus. Satisfied that his enemy was not on the warpath that night, the old watchman re- 
turned to his post muttering as he did so: 

"The divils! Yis, indade, Soph'mores is bad entoirely. Yis, sor, they is bad entoirely, 
an' the worst iv it is they're not gettin' anny better. They is always infestin' the campus 
an' a-prowlin' round at toimes when they ought to be a-studyin'. But Oi'U fix 'em! Oi'll 
raport 'em to the prisidint! He'll suspind 'em. Thot he will! Wud yez belave it, last 
year he suspinded siventane iv the divils. 

"In thim days it wuz worse yit. Thim dom Soph'mores wud be afther givin' me 
throuble almost iv'ry noight. Whin the Freshmen wuz afther havin' their doin's in the 
South Buildin' the Soph'mores wud be afther breakin' in an' clainin' 'em out. At such 
toimes — at such toimes, Oi wud be afther breakin' their heads wid me billy. 

"Wud yez belave it, wanst they caught the Freshman as they was goin' to their

Ex-ChaLncellor Elmlin McClain 

HE resignation of Chancellor McClain as head of the College of L,aw and his 
elevation to the supreme bench has served to bring prominently to public 
attention the record and standing of the school and the men who have 
administered its affairs during the thirty-five years of its existence. A 
glance at its history, its long list of graduates who have occupied, and are 
now occupying, positions of honor and influence in public life and at the 
bar, the distinguished services of the men who have been prominent in its 
administration, the ready acceptance by the bar as a whole of the con- 
clusion that the problem of legal education is best subserved by law school 
instruction, must make the friends of legal education and the College of 
Law of the State University feel that such an honorable past presages a 
brilliant and successful future. 
The College of Law was first established at Des Moines as an independent 
school and was know as the Iowa Law School, with the distinguished judges Wright, Cole 
and Dillon, at that time leaders of the Iowa bar and j udges of the supreme court, as its spon- 
sors, and Wm. G. Hammond, already experienced as a teacher and well-known as a profound 
scholar, associated with them in the faculty. In 1868 the Iowa Law School by vote of 
the trustees of the university, became the law department of the university and was lo- 
cated at Iowa City, with the faculty of the Iowa Law School as professors; Prof. Ham- 
mond, as principal and resident professor of law, bearing the burden of instruction and 
administration. He brought to his task great industry, a profound scholarship and rare 
qualities as a teacher. The first announcement of the department displays his great in- 
sight into the true method of law teaching. He refers to, and endorses, the methods of 
instruction based upon text book reading, informal exposition and analysis of cases, now 
the prevailing method in the leading law schools, and points out the serious defects of 
the formal lecture method then almost in universal use, particularly in the Law schools 
of the middle west. The course of study as laid out was only one year and no prelimin- 
ary education was required for entrance, and one marvels that a young man could be 
equipped with sufficient legal knowledge and insight in such a limited period. Yet 
Chancellor Hammond succeeded in inculcating in his pupils a love of the law, industry, 
and a desire for knowledge, which is a strong commentary on his inspiration as a teacher. 
The length of the course and the requirements for admission remained substantially the 
same until 1884, when the General Assembly increased the period of study for admission 
to the bar to two years, and the course of study in the law department was changed to 
conform to this statute. During the preceding period, however, an advanced course was 
offered, embracing more detailed consideration of the topics of the regular course, and 
the treatment of the philosophical and historical phases of the law. 

In 1881 Chancellor Hammond was called to the St. Louis Law School, and Lewis 
Ross, previously a professor in the department became chancellor. In 1887 Judge Love 
succeeded him, and Emlin McClain, a graduate of the collegiate department in 1871 and 
of the law department in 1873, who had become a resident professor of law in 1881, was 
made Vice-Chancellor, in which position he performed the duties of the chancellorship. 
Judge Love not being a resident. In 1890 he succeeded to the title and the office, the du- 
ties of which he had discharged since 1887. 

Chancellor McClain came to the department as a young man, yet one who by his at- 
tainments as a student, and who as the annotator of the statutes of Iowa had found favor 
with the profession, gave earnest of a successful career in his new line of work. His 
connection with the school has been during the period of its most substantial develop- 
ment and during a period, which in the history of legal education, has marked the great- 
est development in law schools and advancement in methods of law school instruction. 
During this period his activities were not confined to the class room. In the order named 
he prepared the Outlines of Criminal Law Procedure, McClain's Annotated Code; Cases on 
Carriers; Criminal Law. 2 vols.; and Cases on Constitutional Law. During the same 
period numerous articles appeared from his pen in the leading law periodicals. In 1889 
he became an active member of the American Bar Association and as a member and 


chairman of such important committees as the committee on the classification of 
law and the section on legal education'he has played an important and disting-uished 
part in legal reforms and the advancement of legal education. In this state his service 
has been conspicuous as a member of the code commission and the annotator of the 1897 

To one familar with the study and labor involved in Ifgal authorship this recital will 
serve to convey some idea of the energy and devotion of Chancellor McClain to the law 
and legal education. It cannot show his great gifts as a teacher, his patience and kind- 
ness to the student under his care and the consideration and courtesy to his associates. 
Testimony to these qualities can come only from those who have experienced them and 
who have come into contact with him in his various capacities. 

A survey of the history of the department, particularly during Chancellor McClain' s 
administration, shows many things accomplished. Simplicity and exactness have char- 
acterized the adminstration of the business affairs of the 'department. The method of 
instruction has kept pace with that of the most progressive law schools. The policy of 
placing instruction largely in the hands of resident professors who devote their entire 
time to the school was developed in this department more fully and at an earlier 
date than in any of the law schools in the middle west, and this system is being adopted 
by all schools that aspire to standing and to efficiency of methods. Through Chancellor 
McClain' s associations, particularly in the American Bar Association, with the heads 
and teachers of the more important law schools, this department has long had a reputa- 
tion and standing as a thorough school with modern methods of instruction, ranking 
higher in that respect than most of the schools in the middle west with larger endow- 
ments and greater resources. Through his publications he has become widely known 
not only in this state but throughout the Union. By his annotations of the code and his 
digests and his services as a code commissioner he has placed the bar of the state under 
obligations to him and has in turn given to the department the confidence of the profes- 
sion, so that in Iowa we find less opposition among the members of the bar to law school 
education as opposed to office study than in any other state in the west. Since the 
foundation of the school over two thousand graduates have gone out from the depart- 
ment and a great majority of them have settled in this state so that the school to-day has 
a standing based not only upon its efficiency and the confidence in its advisors, but also 
upon the affections of those who have graduated from it. With the course now extended 
to three years and a preliminary education equivalent to a three years' high school 
course provided for by statute, the school takes rank with the best schools of the country 
in time of study as well as method of instruction and can look forward with confidence to 
the future. The resignation of Chancellor McClain is a great blow to the school but the 
results of his energy and foresight have been secured, and the university and the bar of 
the state must ever feel grateful that they were able to command his services for so long 
a period. With knowledge of his capacities and attainments and faithfulness in the 
charges committed to him, the university and the bar will look forward to an honorable 
and distinguished career for him as a justice of the supreme court. 

Dean of the College of Medicine. 

WilliaLm Drummorvd Middleton, A.M., M. D. 

WILLIAM DRUMMOND MIDDLETON, A. M., M. D., the subject of this 
brief sketch, was born in "Bonnie Scotland," in 1844 and is still in the 
prime of vig-orous manhood. The sterling characteristics of the Scotch- 
man find in him a splendid exemplification of sturdy physique indomitable 
will and proverbial tenacity. Though blood of the nobility courses his 
veins, he is thoroughly democratic. He not only accepts but lives the dic- 
tum of Scotland's Bard, "A man's a man for a' that." 

His love for the country of his adoption is strong and his patriotism 
genuine for we find him at the age of twenty a volunteer soldier in the war 
of the Rebellion. 

At the close of the war be began the study of medicine and graduated 
with honors from Bellevue Medical College in 1868, and soon after located at 
Davenport, Iowa, for the practice of his chosen profession. 
The year following, the medical department of the University was organized and he 
was elected to the chair of Physiology and Microscopic Anatomy, a position he contin- 
ued to fill with great acceptance until 1886, when, upon the death of Prof. W. S. Robert- 
son, he was elected to the chair of Practice. His work in Physiology prepared him to 
win new laurels in the field of Theory and Practice. 

Upon the death of Dr. Peck in 1891, he was elected to the chair of Surgery, a posi- 
tion which he continues to hold and in which his surgical lectures, his contributions to 
the discussion of surgical questions of the day, and his work in the operative field mark 
him as one of the leading surgeons of the country. 

He is perhaps greatest in the capacity of teacher. A thorough master of every sub- 
ject which he ventures to present, he selects his points and impresses them in a most 
ingenious manner, a manner peculiarly "Middletonian." 

The truths he imparts live with his students. He is a frank, candid man; a man of 
strong likes and dislikes; of great geniality, warm impulses, and strong friendship. In 
all relations of life he is a man of honor and honesty. In the language of the plowman 

"An honest man 
As ere God with his image blest. 
The friend of man, the friend of truth. 
The friend of age, the guide of youth." 

In 1891 he was elected Surgeon-in-Chief of the C. R. I. & P. railroad, a place requir- 
ing a vast amount of labor and the exercise of the highest type of skill, and it is not too 
much to say that Dr. Middleton has been able to meet all the requirements of this respon- 
sible position in a masterly manner. Conservative, yet prompt and decisive, he has 
made a most capable Surgeon-in-Chief of this great railway corporation. In 1894 he be- 
came Dean of the College of Medicine, a position which he still holds and honors. 

During all these busy years filled with active duties. Dr. Middleton has found time to 
attend faithfully the meetings of county and state Medical Societies and to them he fre- 
quently contributes valuable articles Among the most notable papers from his ready 
pen was a paper on the Etiology of Appendicitis read before a special meeting of the 
Chicago Surgical Society in 1900, which elicited much discussion and attracted wide 
attention. He joined the Iowa State Medical Society in 1870 and the yearly transactions 
of that association are often enriched by his pen. In 1890-91 he was president of the 
society. In 1897 he was made vice-president of the American Medical Association at its 
meeting in Columbus, Ohio. 

In March, 1900, he completed thirty years continuous service in the College of Medi- 
cine and the event was celebrated by a banquet in his honor. During the present school 
year the students of the College have organized a medical society and have named it. 
The Middletonian Society. 

TKe Middletoniatn Medical Society 

^ jlACH succeeding- year demands more and more of the student of science, and 
y ^ |l especially is this true as concerns the members of the medical profession. A 
" medical college, therefore, in order to properly prepare its students for their 
life-work, must meet these demands by constantly adding to its course of 
study, its material equipment, and its didactic force. 

This, the Medical College of the University of Iowa has done. Not only 
has it responded to the call of the state, its people and the medical profession 
of the state, by putting- forth graduates capable of assuming the responsi- 
bilities of their profession in an able and scientific manner, but it has also 
responded to the call of the science by in every way possible, fostering and 
taking an active part in original scientific investigation. 

The physician of the future must be more interested in the sanitary con- 
ditions of his community. As a member of the board of education, as city 
councilman, or as citizen in the meetings of citizens in general, he will be asked for his 
views or propositions affecting the public health. He will be intensely interested in 
the ever-onward progress of his chosen profession. This interest will lead him to take 
an active part in the city, county, district, state, and national medical associations. 

In all of these various activities, the ability of a physician to express his views in a 
simple, clear, and effective manner, will do much to establish his reputation as a physi- 
cian in the community in which he resides as well as determine his standing in the pro- 
fession at large. It was for the purpose of developing this ability, that the Middletonian 
Society was organized. 

The organization and development of this society is due largely to the untiring ef- 
forts and to the spirited enthusiasm of Dr. Chase of Waterloo. From the very beginning 
the student body and faculty have been enthusiastic in the support of the society. 

When the question of selecting a name for the society was brought before its mem- 
bers, it was the unanimous opinion that the society could confer upon itself no greater 
honor than by bearing the name of the honored Dean of the College, — Dr. W. D. Middle- 
ton, of Davenport, whose reputation, 
ability, and influence has done more, 
perhaps, than that of any other man in 
making the Medical College of the Uni- 
versity what it is to-day. 

The general plan of the constitu- 
tion and the work of the society is 
similar to that of the Iowa State Med- 
cal Association. Indeed it is intended 
that the membership in the former 
shall be a preparation for membership 
in the latter. 

The officers of the society are as 
follows: President, A. B. Render, '01, 
of Davenport; Vice-President, A. P. 
Donahoe, '02, of Iowa City; Secretary, 
J. C. Lambert, '03, of Cedar Falls; 
Treasurer, J. D. Lyon, '04. 

As a means of keeping the alumni 
of the College in closer touch with 
their alma mater, the Middletonians 
have founded the Medical Magazine 
which will be issued twice during each 
school year. The board of editors is 
as follows: Editor-in-chief, L. A. 
Wescott, Gladbrook, Iowa; Business 
Manager, J. C. Cooper '02, Red Oak, 

President of the Middletonian Society.

ClaLSS History 

To thoroughly appreciate the description of a class it is necessary to become familiar 
with the individuals comprising it. In our freshman year we had double our present 
number, but some "flunked," while others for various reasons, went elsewhere or dropped 
the work. That each may be known, the roll will be called and an occasional remark 

Beach, Belsheim, Bullock and Blackmore are honest toilers. Misses Beach, Daly, 
and Smith are the ladies of the class, and rank among the leaders, tho' the last two may 
miss graduation because of sickness. Now comes "Adipose" Chapman the "super" of 
the class. Following him are Cantwell, the ladies' man, Cretzmeyer, the wise, Adolph 
F. Henry DeLespinasse whose name cannot be pronounced, and Eli, surnamed Dotson. 

The next name might well be erased, it is that of a homely Irishman, commonly 
called "Fitz.'' He holds forth nightly in the "sky parlor" and the odoriferousness of 
his pedal bromidrosis is only exceeded by the fragrance eminating from the tables. 

Frank, Gifford, Harlan and Harold are pretty good fellows and will pass the State 
Board if the "exam" be not too hard. Hender is a "grafter" and has the nerve to 
carry it through, Hobbs — assistant football coach — a hew! Here is Jarvis the pretty boy 
who loses his temper on small occasions, and following him is Kemmerer whose appear- 
ance elicits a chorus of kisses from the Juniors. 

This brings us to that noisy fellow Krejsa. Close to him are two of the same name 
but very unlike — Eogan, F. W., and Logan, J. A. We now introduce you to one popu- 
larly known as "Jimmie" Eowry, a "base ballist" of no mean dimensions. He is fol- 
lowed by Middleton who should be the best student in the class. Morgan, the overgrown 
boy and Morton, the "sport" are next in line. 

It gives us feigned pleasure to now present Dr. Oreii, of St. Louis; as he is short, 
this must be. Petersen is next — he has an extensive practice somewhere, so he says. 
Pringle, the egotistical member succeeds in order, and following him is the blooming, 
baldheaded Hinglishman, Puleston. 

Reiter has been reckoned among Seniors before. Sailor, ex-"student" interne of the 
University Hospital, Van Gordon, ex-house surgeon of Mercy Hospital, and Wescott, the 
last and least of the list, complete the number. Their history will be found in the history 
of the future.

CIslss History 

We struck the town in September, 1898. There were ninety of us — of every shape, size, 
color, and previous condition of servitude. Our arrival created considerable excitement 
in the town; the natives stuck their heads out the windows as we passed down the street 
and wondered who we were and where on earth we came from. A certain species of 
vertebrates which feed on cigarettes and frequent the pool rooms in droves were es- 
pecially interested in us. We learned later that they were Sophomores. 

After we had registered in the College of Medicine and had become somewhat accus- 
tomed to the classical atmosphere of the campus, we made bold to attend the opening 
address in the amphitheatre. Preliminary to the address, the aforesaid Sophomores and 
other upper classmen called on us to entertain them with songs and jigs and, to vary the 
monotony, passed several of us into the pit. With the opening address by Dr. Whiteis, 
we were very favorably impressed and one of our members suggested as we passed down 
the stairs that Dr. Whiteis would be "easy." Later we attended his lectures in Histology, 
well - !!?**!! 

Then we studied anatomy. Now Siegfried explained to us that anatomy was easy — 
he had studied it for a year and three months in a doctor' s office, and he had the skull 
down right — couldn't catch him on the skull — Oh, no! "Now my preceptor was quizzing 
me on the formation of the base and he asked me what went through the foramen mag- 
num. He thought I would say the vesophegus — not much. Can't catch dis coon on de 

After anatomy, came the dissection of the dog and when Dr. McClintock came around 
and quizzed us on direct and indirect inguinal hernia, we were scared stiff and wondered 
what that had to do with dog. After the anatomy and the dog came the "sweat-box" at 
the end of the hall, then we were Sophomores, at least, some of us were. 

We were Sophomores with a vengeance and kept the good work going as Dr. Chase 
says, by initiating the Freshmen into all the sacred rites of the profession by all the 
heathenish ceremonies traditional among the Medics. As Sophomores, we talked much, 
did little and knew less, but when we became Juniors we put aside childish things and 
began work in earnest. 

Our class is well represented by Reppert, Assistant in Histology; Harkness, Major of 
the University Battalion; Scarborough, Assistant Demonstrator of Anatomy, and Chase, 
Intern at the Hospital. We are proud also of the fact that. Little, one of the 1900 foot- 
ball heros is a member of the class of 1902. Then there is Miss Clark, the only lady in 
the class. Of the several ladies who entered with us she alone has not deserted us. 

Like all classes, we have had our jolly times. We have sung "Blue Bottles," "Hur- 
rah for Mary," "Nearer My God to Thee," "Hot Time," and the other songs of the Medic 
hymn-book whenever occasion invited and between lectures have horrified the Collegi- 
ates across the way and sustained the Medic's reputation for being noisy. 

Considering our past history, our present status and our future prospects, we are 
ready to claim that ours is the only class and the best class in the College of Medicine.

Class History 

We have gathered here from the north, south, east and west to the number of eighty- 
seven Medics, of different ages, nationalities, and talents, yet all actuated by the lauda- 
ble ambition of obtaining our degrees by ability and honest study. We have successfully 
passed through the Freshman's trials with credit to our dignity and with few dislocated 
bones. We have donned the Sophomore's attire and are prepared to perform great things 
for the enlightenment of the Freshmen. The feats of Sampson and Schley in bottling up 
the Spaniards pale into insignificance when compared to our great deeds. What achieve- 
ment of the modern times ever equalled the rapid transit of our ne-v janitor from the 
sloughs of melancholy to the heights of delight — the summit of the amphitheatre? 

Our friend Viers, was the hero of the hour. Miracles of this kind are of daily occur- 
rence among the Sophomores. However, our excitements have not prevented an im- 
mense amount of good work being done by our class. 

The clattering in the dissecting room and the breaking of test-tubes and beakers in 
the laboratory have been the music principally heard among the Medics, and if the ears 
of those engaged are not always gladdened by the sounds, the eyes of the would-be sur- 
geons are delighted by the results the music forboded. We are not prophets nor the sons 
of prophets, but with the officers and faculty as at present, together with all the material 
advantages which the College now enjoys, we would feel no hesitation in hazarding the 
prediction that the Class of 1903 is destined to be a notable one in the annals of Medical 
classes at the U. of I. Our highest aim is not only to produce good physicians, but like- 
wise good men. Irreproachable deportment will continue to be the main-spring of the

Junior Class 

|WING to our inability to secure the appropriate officers, the homeopathic 
medical class of 1902 remained in ( dis)solution until just before the issue 
of the last Hawkeye. Our history as a class began when Mr. Clapp and Mr. 
Crew assembled for the purpose of electing officers whose names might fill 
the blanks in Miller's Annual. 

The meeting was called to order by Mr. Clapp who called upon some one 
present to state the purpose of the meeting. Mr. Crew was the first speaker 
to address the chair and having stated the business before the house 
eloquently nominated and unanimously elected Mr. Clapp to the exalted 
position of president of the class. Mr. Crew was then called to the chair 
and Mr. Clapp, elated over his recent victory, shared the honors by electing Mr. Crew 
vice-president. Then Mr. Clapp crew for the vice-president and Mr. Crew clapped for 
the president, after which the meeting adjourned by a general crowing and clapping. 

After the issue of the Annual a ratification meeting was held at which these officers 
were deposed with great enthusiasm. Revolution has laid the foundation of many gov- 
ernments. The mortality of the aifray was high for although we began with an enroll- 
ment of nineteen we are now but seven. From this time the class has had a substantial 
organization. We obviated all further difficulties by adopting the early principles of Mr. 
Clapp and Mr. Crew in electing ourselves to fill all the offices in sight. 

The staff of officers is thus constituted: President, A. E. Crew; Vice-President, C. V. 
Page; Secretary, G. H. Alden; Treasurer, A. B. Clapp; Sergeants-at-Arms, G. T. Mc- 
Dowall and C. H. Coggswell; Chaplain, B. E. Fullmer. 

Besides the orthodox list of four officers and two sergeants-at-arms, the class enjoys 
the distinction of having a chaplain. As a consequence there is no imminent danger of 
dissension, the sergeants being able to devote their whole attention to keeping them- 
selves in order and the chaplain caring for the moral welfare of the sergeants, the other 
officers being busily engaged in passing laws, defining the duties of the sergeants and 
keeping them awake. 

With this energetic and efi^ective organization the sergeants will get along all right 
and future Hawkeyes will continue to chronicle only peace and progress on to the end of 
the story.

The College of Dentistry 

[INETEEN years a.go on the 18th of April the Board of Regents of the State 
University consented to the establishment of a Dental Department. Its pro- 
gress and growth from that time to the present makes an interesting 
chapter in the history of the University. It has a history even previous to 
this date, for it was through the influence of the State Dental Society that 
this action of the Board of Regents was brought about. The establishment 
of this Department had been in the minds of the members of the Society 
for several years. It was at the annual meeting of 1879 or thereabouts 
that Dr. J. Hardman of Muscatine offered a resolution looking to the 

establishment of this Department and moved the appointment of a 

committee which should present the matter to the Board of Regents. 
This met with the unanimous approval of the Society and Dr. L. C. Ingersoll, 
J. P. Wilson, W. O. Kulp and A. O. Hunt were selected as that committee. The 
committee with Dr. Ingersoll as its chairman met with the Board, presented the 
advantages and necessity of such a department, and finally secured its establishment, 
provided that the school be run without expense to the State until such time as it proved 
to be a success, the faculty to be appointed without salary, except what little came as 
tuition from students. And the facts are that all this income was used by the faculty in 
fitting up the laboratory and operating room. The Board furnished a small amount of 
University funds with which to buy second-hand chairs. Upon establishing the Depart- 
ment the Board appointed this same committee as faculty of the new institution with 
Dr. L. C. Ingersoll as Dean. This action placed the committee in rather an embarrasing 
position. They refused to accept the offices and asked that the state society be 
allowed to name the faculty. At the next meeting in Oskaloosa the society unanimously 
ratified the action of the Board ia the appointment of these men. They immediately set 
about to organize the Department and soon issued the announcement of the first session 
to open October 11, 1882. Other members of the profession who took an active part in 
bringing about this action of the Board, were Drs. J. Hardman, J. T. Abbott, S. A. 
Garber, G. W. Fuller, and others whose names can not be recalled at this time. On the 
eleventh of October, the first session opened with Josiah L. Pickard, Lt. L. D. as 
President;!,. C. Ingersoll, A. M., M. D., Dean; J. P. Wilson, D. D. S., Professor; W. O. 
Kulp, D. D. S., Professor; A. O. Hunt, Professor and Secretary of the faculty. Quite 
a number of the profession of the state were present on the first day to witness the 
launching of this department. The first days session was taken up mostly with speech 
making by President Pickard, Dean Ingersoll and others. The lecture and operating 
room was the south room on first floor in the old building, just north of the Medical 
Building, and Dr. Hunt's office laboratory was used as the Department Laboratory 
during the first year. Then room was secured in the basement, and fitted up for a 
laboratory. There were fourteen students — eight in the senior class and six in the 
junior. The first years work was carried on under many difficulties, but the professors 
were faithful and determined to make this first year a success. When the end of the 
first session rolled around the following received their diplomas from the hands of 
President Pickard with the honor of being the first graduates of the Dental Department: 
Alfred O. Hunt, Benjamin Price, A. Morsman, Earnest E. Hughes, George W. Fuller, 

"William H. Baird, Joseph B. Monfort, and Perry A. Gibson, the last named being- 
valedictorian of the class. The exercises were held in the Opera House which was 
crowded. Rev. J. C. W. Coxe, D. D., an Honorary Member of the State Society 
delivered the annual address. The impression made upon the audience, I think, was 
that the new department had come to stay. 

For five years this faculty of earnest men labored with but little remuneration. The 
first three leaving their respective homes once a week, traveling early and late, and in 
all kinds of weather that the department might be a success. When the medical building 
was built the Dental School was given a home in it. The northwest room on the first- 
floor for an operating room and room in the basement for a laboratory which was quite 
an improvement over what they had. The number of students increased and the 
work progressed so satisfactorily that it was very evident that there was to be an 
educational institution of no mean proportion. The Board of Regents recognized this 
fact at the end of five years and took the department into full relationship as a member 
of the university family, and an appropriation was secured for its maintenance, with 
salaries for the professors. But hardly had this stage of progress been reached when 
trouble arose in the faculty family resulting in 1889 in the Regents making Prof. A. O. 
Hunt, Dean. Professors Ingersoll, Wilson and Kulp stepped down and out. It is only just 
to say that this action did not meet with the approval of a majority of the state society 
at its next annual meeting. But the action of the Regents was law. Under the new 
arrangement Dr. R. L. Cochran was made professor of Operative Dentistry and 
Therapeutics, filling that chair very acceptably for two years and was then succeeded by 
Dr. W. O. Kulp who filled that position until his death Jan. 12, 1895. Prof. Hunt and 
those associated with him worked hard to build up the institution and it was during this 
period that the appropriation was secured for the new Dental Building which now 
adorns the campus. The building was dedicated Jan. 3, 1895. 

Dr. Kulp on his death bed said that he felt like Moses of old, permitted only to view 
the promised land from afar. He knew that death would come to him before the dedica- 
tion of this new building in which he had been so deeply interested. 

The day of dedication was a happy day not only for the professors and students but 
for the alumni and all the profession who had been watching its progress and develop- 
ment with so much interest. Dr. Hunt received deserving credit for his untiring energy 
in securing this building. 

Dr. F. T. Breene was chosen to succeed Dr. Kulp, and W. S. Hosford for the chair of 
Prosthetic Dentistry. In 1897 another change occured. Things had not been altogether 
satisfactory to the Board of Regents and it finally culminated in Dr. Hunt leaving the 
department, and a re-organization of the faculty as it is to-day, with Dr. W. S. Hosford, 
Dean, Dr. F. T. Breene and Dr. W. H. DeFord as the other members of the faculty with 
a strong corps of other instructors. 

May the Dental Department continue to grow and prosper and have the united 
support of the profession of the state, but while we look with pride upon the splendid 
building with its spacious operating rooms, laboratories and other equipments so 
conveniently arranged for the study of Dentistry, let us not forget those professors of 
the past who sacrificed so much time and money that this department might become 
what it is to-day, and may it continue to advance until it stands at the head of the Dental 
Colleges of the United States, which leads the world in Dentistry.

1. And it came to pass in the sev- 
enteenth year of the reign of W.>-hos- 
ford on the twelfth day of the month 
which is called Septober, that there 
assembled at the Temple of Learn- 
in k certain wise men which were 
come from far countries for the pur- 
pose of studying Dentistry. 

2. And there came also certain fe- 
male women which were called 
Edaily and Coraminer, and Misscde- 
twiler, and Missallen. And all these 
together made up the great class of 
'02 at the College of Dentistry. 

3. Now when these wise men had 
counseled among themselves they 
said one to another: Come, let us go 
up into the Synagogue. 

4. And they went up into the Syn- 
gogue which was in the Temple of 
Learning and behold a certain tribe 
which were called '01 had taken pos- 
session of the synagogue. 

5. And when the wise men en- 
tered the synagogue, the rabble cried 
upon them, saying: Hail Freshies, 
it is meet that you should dance and 
sing songs for our amusement. 

6. And the wise men, as the man- 
ner was, did thereupon shake their 
feet and jig and certain among them 
sang songs. And they were of good 

7. Howbeit, a certain one (a) among 
them refused to dance saying that he 
was a Methodist preacher. 

8. Then the men of '01 arose in an- 
ger and laid violent hands upon him 
and cast him into the pit. 

9. And when the noise had sub- 
sided the high priests of the syna- 
gogue arose and spoke to the wise 
men saying what books they should 

10. And they bought the books and 
came daily to the Temple of Learn- 
ing and worked busily in the Pros- 
thetic Lab. 

1 1. And about this timp it came to 
pass that a certain one among the 
wise men (b) while taking an im- 
pression swallowed a half-pound cf 
modeling compound These and 
many other things happened and 
then it was spring. 

12. Then about the steenth day of 
the season there came up into the 
synagogue a tribe of heathen (c) 

13. And the heathen were sore 
wroth aa;ainst their righteousness 
and wrought wicked things to pro- 
voke them to angrr 

14. And on a certain day there 
arose qiiarreling and angry words 
between the wise men and the hea- 
then, and the wise men laid aside 
their mantles and sailed after them. 

15. But in the midst of the scrap, 
entered one of the high priests (d) 
who rebuked the wise men saying: 
Wise men, it is not meet that you 
should slay the children of iniquity. 

16. And they hearkened unto his 
voice and peace was throughout the 

land. And the heathen withdrew 
with their wounded and carried them 
to the upper chamber (e) and cut them 
to pieces as their custom was. 

17. Then about this time, the wise 
men counseled among themselves 
whether they should choose among 
their number one great leader which 
should rule them. And it was of 
good report. 

18. Then Rhvolland son of Idono- 
hoo was chosen to be Grand Mogul 
of the wise men, and Fhaffa son of 
Hizolman was made, Vice-Grand 
Mogul, and they chose also Cminer 
to be scribe and Wkain to be Col- 
lector of the Customs. 

19. Now it came to pass that strife 
arose again between the men of '01 
and the wise men. And the men of 
'01 mocked the wise men and spat at 
them saying. I thank thee Lord, 
that I am not like one of these. 

20. Then the wise men arose in 
anger and entered the chamber of 
the men ot '01 (f) and chastised them 
and beat them with their fists so that 
they were sore afraid and cried out. 
Enough. Enough. And the wise 
men gave them plenty enough. 

21. And then it was winter and 
the wise men did little but plug, (g) 
knowing that a great trial (h) was in 
store for them. And the trial came. 
And certain of them flunked but 
several passed. 

22. And after winter, came spring. 
And the chief priest of the synagogue 
sent the wise men down into the 
lower regions (i) and commanded 
them to search for the unknown. 
And the wise men lingered in the 
lower regions many days and there 
encountered even the Prince of In- 
iqiiity (j). 

23. A short while before this time 
a certain one of the wise men (k)put 
aside his faith and became a Homeop. 

24. Then the wise men separated 
one from another (1) and agreed to 
return at an appointed day. 

25. And after many days they as- 
sembled again at the Temple of 
Learning and went up into the syna- 

26. But certain of the wise men 
were missing. Carrol and Reichart 
which were unwise wise men went 
to the School of Dentistry which is at 
Chicago. Neither came Ferree nor 
Wood which were of the original 

27. Now when the wise men had 
assembled again in the synagogue, 
the high priest gave unto each the 
materials for nine bone teeth and a 
crown (m) and lo. the wise men 
made for themselves teeth and 
crowns and became rulers of the syn- 

2S. Now all this came to pass in 
the year of our Lord 1900-01 during 
the reign of Wshosfoid, high priest 
of the synagogue in the College of 
Dentistry at the University of Iowa.

AStxidyirvNaLtursLl History 

The Freshman belongs to a species of the animal kingdom whose origin is not ex- 
actly known. From the slight mention made of them in ancient history we take it that 
they were scarce and very savage in those days. Nothing definite was known of them 
until the present century. 

In his natural state, the Freshman roams about the woods and fields. He seems 
especially fond of being near the farming districts and does not thrive well when brought 
to town. The Freshman in his natural state is, generally speaking, not savage. 

Freshmen are bipeds. They have also two other limbs which resemble very much 
the arms of a man. They are from five to six feet in hight and their heads are covered 
with very long shaggy hair which varies in color from a dark green to a bright red. 
The peculiar feature of these animals is that they have very large feet and possess no 
frontal eminences. The latter fact is due perhaps to a lack of development of the brain. 
The Freshmen are captured by being lassoed or trapped. They are not usually found 
in packs or herds but live alone. 

A large number of these strange animals are gathered each year by men selected for 
that purpose and taken to different parts of the United States where they have schools 
built to train them. After the captured animals have been in one of these menageries 
for a short time, they show great affinity for one another and will generally be seen in 
droves of three or four, but never alone. This is probably due to the fact that they are 
frightened by their new surroundings. When they have been together for a short time 
they select a leader whom they thereafter follow closely. When first captured they appear 
to be savage but upon the approach of a Junior this savage appearance suddenly van- 
ishes and they become as meek as lambs. 

They are nearly always under a trainer who watches them that they do not fight among 
themselves and that none of them shall escape and return to their native haunts. It is 
an amusing sight to see a pack of these animals when first captured. The herd which 
was captured by the College of Dentistry this year consists of forty-five members, col- 
lected from all parts of the state. Some of them seem so meek and helpless that it almost 
seems a pity they should be taken from their mothers so soon.. The Freshman utters a 
very peculiar sound — one which is hard to imitate or describe. It is something between 
the sound uttered by a calf and that of a lamb at the slaughter. For a long time after 
their capture the Freshmen are fed on nothing but milk. It has been found that upon 
this food they thrive best. The trainer of the herd at the College of Dentistry, on being 
interviewed said that those under his care at the present time are making rapid progress 
toward civilization and that by June he would have them entirely civilized. 

An Hour witK the Inimitatble 
Junior Dent 

N matters of g-etting up, making his toilet and breakfasting, the Junior 
Dent is human and hurried, but his life from 7:45 to 9:00 A. M. is quite out 
of the ordinary. We will follow him after he has left his boarding house 
and has whistled his way across the campus to the Dental Building. Upon 
entering the building he glances into the library and there sees Old 
Householder. Now Householder doesn't room there but he just gets there 
early in the morning. After the greetings of the day and various inquiries 
as to the extent of his knowledge of anatomy, Massa Reedy, Old Man 
Volland, Aucht Lewis and Dean Spraker appear on the scene. 

Immediately upon the arrival of a few more among whom are Jeff, 
Whistle Cook, The Renowned Village Cut-up Lingo, alias Bingo, Dad 
Banton, Hildy and Shep Hunger, Dean Spraker delivers to a very appreciative audience 
his verj' famous lecture on "The Possibilities and Limitations of the Dental Library." 
After this mighty discourse which dumbfounds the fellows, Old Man Volland suggests 
that it is time for the lecture to begin and there is a general stampede f^.r the amphi- 
theater or No. 17. 

There is a traditional superstition among the Junior Dents that the two front rows of 
seats bring ill luck to the occupants and hence the class seeks a higher altitude. Ah! 
Babe Roth appears upon the scene and peers anxiously about to see if Carrie has arrived, 
[as a passing remark we might say that Babe has been a long time in this world as he is 
six feet three inches tall]. With much self-control he takes his seat and patiently waits. 
Old Bill Spence, and Freshie Small accompanied by Freshie Meyer, and Oh, Mr. [ohnson, 
accompanied by Grouchy Hoxie, arrive and take seats amid great applause from the class. 
Why all this applause? On close observation, the fact will be revealed that Spence has a 
new necktie. Small has treated himself to his semi-annual hair-cut and above all Hoxie 
is wearing a new smile! Wiene Paul, Old Bill Kain, Dutch Rittler, and Hugh ie Rupp 
darken the door-way and take seats. 

Dad Porter with Eunice, followed by the other three ladies of our class, Carrie, Cora 
and Henrietta, now leisurely saunter to their seats. (Babe Roth is all smiles). The 
majority of the class is now assembled and the formal exercises of the day must be gone 
through with. 

Ever since the advent of man, the featherless biped, all religious and other similar 
ceremonies have opened by offering up thanks and it is thought also that song made 
Cromwell's Ironsides practically unconquerable in their mighty struggles; so with these 
two facts before us, why should not our battles of the day be preceded by a very earnest 
display of musical vocalization? Therefore under the direction of our Musical Director 
Jeff, the Doxology, with all its beauty and harmony, is rendered. It is a thrilling display 
of musical talent. Fifty well trained voices, minus those who have not arrived, of 
various keys and pitches blend together in one grand melodious continuation of chords, 
major, minor and possibly medium in this magnificent rendition of the Doxology. 

When completed a hush falls upon the entire class and Guy Toad hastily enters and 
takes his seat. Guy does not hurry because he is busy, for he has no business — only 
trying to make people believe he has, and so he comes late and hurries to his seat. 

Smiler Evers, Junk Scherer and his chum, Ward McAllister and Churchill, follow 
Toad and last but not least Sissy Waud and Pretty Cress, thp pride of our class, make 
their appearance for lecture. With this slight interruption tAe ceremonies proceed. 

The next number on the program consists of extolling various members of the class 
in song. Hughie Rupp, the man who worked 102 days last summer, is first to have his 
name set to the music of "Old Grimes is Dead." Sissy Waud, Pretty Cress, Tubby 
BoUand, Runt Reedy, Stubby Stutters, Shep Hunger and others are praised in like 

After this very generous distribution of appreciation, the very serious and profound 
musical production, "The Wild Man of Borneo" is rendered, even to the minutest detail 
(the fuzz on the wings of the flea ). This is foUoweo by singing "Throw Out the Life- 
Line, " "Nearer My God to Thee," "Bringing in the Sheaves," and many other such 
appropriate songs until the lecturer arrives. 

It is needless to say that we all love our instructors, and fully appreciate their tireless 
eflforts to expound to us the mysteries of the human system and especially those of the 
Buccal cavity. So, on the arrival of the lecturer, a very sincere and profound welcome 
cousisting of clapping of hands, stamping of feet, intermingled with shrill whistles and 
Indian war-hoops of various volumes, greets his ever attentive and tender ear. 

After a hard struggle, quiet finally reigns, the lecturer proceeds, and the battles of 
the day begin. 

F\jnny and not so Funny 

Bill Kain says that he isn't pigeon-toed. It is his shoes that make him look that 
way. ( That maj' be so but then ). 

Dr. Chase: "How is arsenic excreted from the body?" 
Meyer: "By the teeth." 

It is rumored that the inventor of the new impression tray, who is now a member of 
the senior class, has also found a way of taking impressions with pumice and in case that 
fails uses sodium carbonate. We are not ready to testify as to the truth of this state- 

If any one knows where Mr. Volland was Thanksgiving day, they will greatly oblige 
his friends and parents by telling them the same. 

Dr. Dean: "Why does the food pass so quickly through the mouth and pharynx?" 
Mr. Thode: "So that it will not get too wet." 

Ask Babe Roth why he always helps Dr. Chase put on his overcoat. 

Fitzpatrick: "How does the Facial nerve communicate with the Auditory nerve?" 
Waud: "By the Tendon of Zinn." 

Dr. Dean: "What is the Papillary muscle in the. heart for?" 

Ray Brown (Freshie): "To take in Oxygen and give off CO2 and waste matter." 

Freshman: "What is the epidermatic method of applying remedies?" 
Paddy Wilson: "I don't know for I am not very good in Histology but am fine in 
Materia Medica." 

Hunger seems to have a different way of adding- figures than that used by Dr. 

Dr. Bierring to Seniors in quiz: "You recite like a lot of parrots." 

Lang, '01., (as he meets Dr. Chase): "Hello Chase!" 
Dr. Chase: "How do you do Dr. Lang?" 

Cannon has a new chip blower operated by lung power. Write or call for prices. 

Shane asks his patients to remove their shoes before he begins operations. 

J. A. Davis — Ivady Patients a specialty. No men need apply for appointments. 

Moore (waking up): "What is the question please?" 
Dr. Bierring: "I haven't asked one yet." 

Jan. 16, 1901. Trilby Fraser stayed at home in the evening and studied. 

Some of the Freshmen were accompanied by their mothers when they started in this 
fall. A wise plan for all freshies. 

Dr. Dean: "Is Mr. Thode present?" 
Several voices: "Sick! Sick!" 

Dr. D: "Whenever I hear anyone answer sick to Mr. Thode's name I think of the old 
Biblical saying, 'All men are liars'." 

Dr. DeFord has adopted the unique plan of giving private lectures to the male 
portion of the Junior class. 

The girls of the Junior class are to be complimented on their courage and bravery. 
They have all shown that they can ride a "/owjf" without any fear whatever. 

Dr. Dean: "How do we know that the soft palate keeps the food from vegurgitating 
into the mouth?" 

Mr. Cooling: "Because if we remove the soft palate and put in the cleft palate the 
food will vegurgitate into the mouth." 

Miss Ainsworth (visiting clinic with one of the Junior girls): "Why! Do all these 
p ople come up here just to let the students poke holes in their teeth?" 

Dr. Dean: "What is Biology?" 

Wise Freshman (promptly): "The science of the bile." 

Dr. Harriman; "How long is the vertebral column?" 
Munger: "Three feet." 

Dr. Chase: "What is the dose of Epsom Salts?" 
Mr. Miller: "Two oz." 

Dr. C: "Yes, Mr. Miller, a very good dose — for a horse." 

Dr. Dean: "Why do the corpuscles sink to the bottom in the blood clot?" 
Mr. Lewis: "Because the liquid rises to the top." 

Two Dates to be Remembered bv Ai,i, 
Nov. 22, 1900. Henry Evers made a recitation in Materia Medica.

divine services at the Congregational church and as far as any one knows experienced 
no bad results. 

Dr. Chase: "What is one of the rules for the avoidance of incompatibilities?" 
Freshie: "Alkalies participate alkaloids." 

College of PKarmaLcy 

The time has come when young men wishing to adopt the profession of a Pharma- 
cist, realize the fact that a good thorough college education is required to place them on 
an equal basis with their brother pharmacists. The first question that a man asks when 
seeking to engage the services of a prescription clerk is: "Are you a graduate from a Col- 
lege of Pharmacy?" And if the answer is in the negative, you will receive the firm 
reply, "I want a college graduate, "and you are forced to go elsewhere in search of em- 
ployment; and when you do find it you are compelled to work for a smaller salary than 
your neighbor, because he has Ph. G. attached to his name and knows more about his 
profession than you do. The facilities and accommodations which are afiforded the stud- 
ents, in the College of Pharmacy of the State University of Iowa, are unsurpassed by 
any College of Pharmacy in the West. The laboratories, both chemical and pharmacy 
are large, bright and fitted in a modern, up-to-date style with a full and complete line of 
apparatuses and afi^ord conveniences to the student which are not found in any other 
Western college. Some few 3'ears ago the Pharmacy department of Colleges was looked 
upon as merely a side issue, but it has now become apparent that it is as important as the 
study of Ivaw or Medicine. The faculty of the State University of Iowa were among the 
first to realize this fact and hence they have steadily made improvements for the benefit 
and accomodation of a large number of students. The professors, each and every one, 
are capable and reliable teachers, and their system of work is planned with care and pre- 
cision and taught in such a manner that when a student graduates he is capable of ful- 
filling the duties of any position connected with his profession. The class of '02 thinks 
there is no better place to study pharmacy than at the College of Pharmacy of the State 
University of Iowa. 


J\ii\ior Class, 1902 

Ho! Ho! Ho! 
Hi! Hi! H! 
Pharniaceuts! Pharmaceuts! 
U. of I.! 
Ha! Ha! Ha! 
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! 
We are the people 
Of 1902. 

Hail to the class of 1902, whose distinguising- characteristic, says the Dean, is unself- 
ishness. Never before in the history of the College of Pharmacy has there been a 
class where unselfishness prevailed to such a marked degree. This may indeed seem 
slender praise, but it is not all that can be said of the class of '02. Hence it is with a 
spirit of enthusiasm and pleasure that we accept the opportunity presented by the Junior 
Annual to call your attention to the jolliest class of students that ever entered upon the 
study of Pharmacy. One dismal, rainy morning in Sept. 1900, there gathered in the 
Chemical Building of the best college of Pharmacy in the West, thirty-nine gentlemen 
and one of the fair sex. The latter came, we thought, to act as a guardian angel over 
our class, but upon learning that we were all good Sunday School boys, she modestly 
withdrew and wended her way to the College of Liberal Arts, to protect the innocent 
ones there from harm. On this particular morning of which I speak after the initiative 
lecture was over, the boys proceeded forthwith to become acquainted and we learned that 
each and every one was a gentleman and a "hail fellow well met" and that our class had 
a representative not only from many towns in the state but also from towns outside of her 
boundry lines. They came not only from towns and cities but from places where their 
lessons were assigned them as they sat upon improvised benches in the old rustic school 
house which has left many fond recollections never to be forgotten. As we filed out of 
the amphitheatre after our first lecture on chemistry we were filled with amazement and 
wondered how our professor could make such a common article as water out of two invis- 
ible substances called Hydrogen and Oxygen. We had come to work and firmly resolved 
that when that work was completed we would be able to make things which we once 
thought were impossibilities. We entered the Pharmaceutical Laboratory with a feeling 
of pride and also some conceit, but after a few days wrestling with Nuguenta Hydrargy- 
rum and Emplastrum Plumbi we would meekly put our tables in order and quietly take 
our seat in the lecture room, to be made acquainted with the peculiar shaped apparatuses 
with which our future work would have to deal. Such is the life of our Junior Pharmacy 
student, and in our dreams appear visions of the future, we see our names in large gilt 
letters, with a Ph. G. attached, on the plate glass front of an up-to-date Pharmacy in a 
thriving Western city. But these pleasant dreams are brought to an abrupt termination 
by the dawn of a new day and once more we find ourselves preparing to make those 
dreams a reality. After the first three months of school days had elapsed and our exam- 
inations over, with a clear conscience we packed our grips to go home and spend a 
pleasant vacation, and each and every student returned, at the dawn of a new century, 
with a firm resolution to be one of the class, which will receive its diplomas in 1902, 
from the University College of Pharmacy. 

Q \i o t t i o rv s From the Chief Joker 

Dean Boerner: 

"A syrup is a saccharine substance of sweetness containing much sugar." 
"Distilled water is the wettest water obtainable." 

"The only compound which contains more definite and indefinite ingredients than 
tar, is boarding-house hash." 

"Soda water from a fountain tastes like your foot was asleep." 

"Bring four things to the lecture to-morrow, lead pencil, note book and two ears, one 
of which should be plugged."

Ye PK'unny PKa.rmaceuts 

A certain heathen Pharraaceut brought a large, juicy onion to the lecture room one 
morning, and before the lecturer arrived, the class enjoyed an impromptu base ball game. 
The first man at bat "knocked the cover off the ball" and when "Tuffie" arrived he 
sniffed the air and looked wise. Upon seeing the pieces of onion scattered over the floor 
he addressed them thusly: "After this I wish that students would please eat their meals 
at their boarding houses and not bring their lunches to the lecture room." 

Prof. Teeters: "Mr. Shull, how would you give a fluid drachm of medicine to a 

Shull: "I would make a pill out of it." 
Prof. T. : "And if it were two drachms?" 
Shull: "Give him two pills." 

Dr. Chase: "Mr. Cory, what is spirits?" 

Mr. Cory: "I don't know; but I know what spirits of alcohol is." 

One of the boys undertook to scratch his ear with a beaker full of Nitric Acid and as 
a result, a good portion of the Aqua Ammonia stock was used up and a suit of clothes 
thrown in the rag heap. 

He Knew It — But He Didn't 

He had started to go to college 

And thought he knew it all; 
For he was a "first year man," 

And talked exceedingly "tall." 

But it chanced one day to happen 

When left alone by himself, 
He tried to rill a prescription 

And now he's on the "shelf." 

He took a wedgewood mortar 

And a little pestle too; 
He couldn't find the P. Pot. Chlor., 

So made the crystals do. 

It was Pot. Chlor. and Sulphur; 

Into the mortar they went. 
And then he started to triturate — 

This charming "first-year" gent. 

Oh! Somewhere in the city 

Is a store without a door. 
With many a shattered window. 

And a grease spot on the floor. 

In the churchyard there's a mound 

Where lies the "first-year's" dust; 
This epitaph is on his tomb: 

"Sulphur and Potash bust!" 

— Selected.

General Orders { 
No. 6 * 

Headquarters, Battalion, S. U. I., 
Iowa City, Iowa, 
Sept. 20, 1875. 













All articles of uniform must be made in strict conformity with the following- patterns. 

CoAT: Double-breasted frock coat of cadet grey cloth, the skirt to extend from one- 
half to three-fourths the distance from the hip joint to the bend of the knee: seven 
buttons, stand-up collar not less than one nor more than one and one-half inches high, to 
hook in front at the bottom and slope thence up and backward at an angle of thirty 
degrees on each side, corners rounded, pockets in folds of the skirts with two buttons at 
the hips and one at the lower end of each side edge, making- four buttons on the back 
and skirt of the coat; collars and culfs of the same material as the coat and the latter 
with three small buttons under the seams. 

Overcoat: Grey Kersey, double breasted, to reach two inches below the knee, 
stand-up collar reaching to the tips of the ears and hooked in front; six buttons down the 
front on each side, two buttons on the hips and one at the bottom of each plait behind; 
cape of same material as coat, seventeen inches in length to button in front; pockets in 
the folds of the skirt. 

Trowsers: Cadet grey cloth with black stripe one inch wide down the outer seam. 

Cap: Of cadet grey, chasseur pattern. 

1. Recognizing the difficulties and expense attending the procurement of a uniform, 
and at the same time desiring to have the Battalion in a presentable shape at the end of 
the term, the following is recommended with the approval of the President of the Uni- 
versity as a cheap and serviceable uniform forg-ymastic and military exercises. 

Hat: White straw with black ribbon. 

Jacket: Red flannel overshirt with navy collar, the letters I. S. U. (Iowa State 
University) in script of white tape immediately below the bosom. Letters four inches 

Military rank to be indicated in the angles of the collar, by the following badges in 
white tape sewed on the collar, viz: 
Corporal — Chevron of two bars. 

O. H. Brainerd, 

1st Lieut, and Adj't. 

By order of LiEUT. SchENCk, 
Prof, of Military Science and Tactics. 

Orders No. 7. 

University Battalion, N. G. S. I.

2. It is not intended to discard the present uniform. Officers may continue to wear 
it in any company and all other students who have provided themselves with it will be 
transferred to one company so that uniformity in the companies may be maintained. 

3. The new gymnastic uniform is intended for the relief of the many students who 
have not yet provided themselves with any uniform. 

By order of Major Chester. 

J. E. Mclntyre, 

1st L/ieut. and Adj't, University Battalion, N. G. S. I. 

Headquarters University Battalion, 
Orders: Iowa City, Iowa, April 28, 1882. 

1. The following resolution of the Board of Regents passed June 20, 1881, and which 
has remained posted on the Bulletin Board during the entire winter, is published for the 
information of all concerned, viz: 

"Resolved — That all male students in the University, members of the battalion 
capable of military duty, shall, from and after the commencement of the spring term of 
1882, be required to procure the uniform now adopted (dark blue), and that the same shall 
be worn on all occasions when required by the Prof, of Military Science." Attention is 
called to the fact that the cap and white gloves are as much a part of the uniform as the 
coat and pants. 


By order of the Battalion Commandant.

Track Athletics 

mHE 1900 track team contained no stars or other 
naires. It was, however, the best all-round track 
team that ever represented the University of Iowa. 
Its strength did not depend on one individual but 
upon the combined excellence of all its members. 
At the StateField Meet we won more points than any- 
other two colleges in the state combined. In every 
event with the exception of one, the Hop, Step and 
Jump, we secured a place. In all we captured six 
firsts, eight seconds, and five thirds. 

During the early part of the season, after our 
men had been on the track but about three weeks Northwestern 
defeated us on our home grounds by a score of 8 to 5. The latter 
team had had the advantage of an indoor track and gymnasium. 

In the Grinnell meet we easily won over our old friend and 
foe by a score of 79 >^ to 53)4 ■ The meet scheduled with Minne- 
sota was declared off on account of rain. 

To single out individuals of this all-round team for special 
praise would be impossible as well as unjust. Captain Brown, 
however, may be mentioned as one of the surest point-winners. 
For his plucky half-mile race at the State Meet when he scram- 
bled out of the dust after a bad fall at the beginning of the race 
and won out over eight competitors, he deserves especial admira- 

The successes of the team were in large part due to the careful training of Dr. A. A. 
Knipe and Fred A. Williams. At no time were the men over-trained or over-confident. 
The competition for places upon the team was spirited. We had several men training 
for every position. In the long runs and field events we were especially fortunate in 
having an abundance of good material. 

The recent awakening in all lines of athletic sports at Iowa led the Regents to make 
generous appropriations for the improvement of the athletic park. The University now 
ownes all the land between the two bridges and has enclosed the space with a very 
respectable tight board fence. The ground has been drained and levelled. The track 
is now 2-5 of a mile long and about double its former width. These improvements in con- 
nection with the increasing interest in the sport portend a time in the near future when 
the record of track athletics at Iowa shall be raised to as high a plain as our football 
record. The outlook for 1901 is especially bright. We have lost but one or two old men 
and many new men are ready to begin training as soon as the weather permits. 

The Board of Control decided to secure a special trainer for the track team for next 
year. Dr. Knipe will then be able to devote all his attention to the base ball team. The 
Board has been fortunate in securing the services of JohnnyMack whose work as Trainer 
at Columbia University and skill as a trainer of track men will help make the 1901 
track team a winner.

Lloyd Howell 

Lfloyd Howell, '00., winner of the 
Max Mayer prize for joint excellence in 
athletics and scholarship, began his ath- 
letic training- in the Iowa City High 
School where he played on the football 
and baseball teams and was star athlete 
in the high jump, hurdles, and pole vault. 

During his freshman year at the 
University, Howell won points in the pole 
vault and hurdle races. As sophomore he 
was high jumper and hurdler and played 
half-back on the second eleven. At the 
outbreak of the Spanish-American war 
he joined Company F, 2nd U. S. Volun- 
teer Engineers at Chicago and went to 
Cuba. During his career in the army he 
rose in the ranks from private to sergeant- 
major. In June, 1899, he returned to his 
home in Iowa City and re-entered the Uni- 
versity the following fall. On the '99 
football team, Howell was substitute 
tackle and end and played a fierce, hard 
game. In the field meets, he won first in 
the 120 and 220 yard hurdle races at the 
Home Meet, first in the 220 and second in 
the 120 hurdles at the lowa-Grinnell Meet, 
second in both hurdle races in the State 
Field Meet and was on the Iowa relay 
team. Howell's record in the 120 yard 
hurdles is 18 sec; in the 220 hurdles, 27 2-5, 
made at the Home Field Meet. Later in 
the season he made much better time. 

In the training room he was a favorite. 
No one more willingly loaned his running 
shoes or his towel and if it chanced that 
one of his running mates had forgotten 
his track suit or his sweater he went to 
Howell about it. "Whenever the track was in shape, Howell was there pounding away 
and it was often said in the training quarters that L,loyd Howell never gave up until the 
end of the race. No one trained more persistently or obeyed the advice of the trainer 
more carefully and when his race came he could be depended on to win points for the 

Howell was no star athlete, nor is his record a brilliant one, but his hard persistent 
training and high scholarship make him a type of athlete to be honored.

Base B 1 1 

For the first time in its history the silver bat which 
represents the championship in the Iowa Baf-e Ball 
League is in our possession. Captain Williams, the 
team and the managers deserve great credit for the 
success of the season. With a determination that there 
should be a new record in base ball at Iowa, Captain 
Williams and his men began early training. The 
success of our '99 football team made it easy for 
Manager McCutchen to arrange a schedule which con- 
tained more games and with more formidable opponents 
than ever before. The prospective trips were sufficient 
to bring out about fifty men to try for places on the 
team. Material was abundant and competition active. 
The survival of the fittest resulted in a winning team. 

In order to give the candidates an opportunity to 
exhibit their skill, a series of practice games was 
arranged with the Des Moines I^eague and the Nebraska 
Indians. Even after these games, it was difficult to 
select a team because there were several good players 
for each position. 

In all, Iowa played twenty-three games. Fifteen 
were against teams composed of strictly college men. 
Of these, we won thirteen out of the fifteen by a total 
score of one hundred and fifty-two to seventy-nine, 
loosing only to Wisconsin and Illinois, the latter getting 
revenge for the defeat which they received at the hands 
of our football players on the preceding fall. The 
majority of the games with professional and college- 
professional teams were lost. Invariably, however, in 
such cases, our opponents were winners only by a small margin and the games were 
close and exciting. 

Iowa defeated Ames, Cornell and Grinnell by three straight victories with a total 
score of 38 to 4. Considering that we won six games from teams of the state with a score 
of 64 to 17, our right to the silver bat and the championship is unquestioned. 

Increasing interest in the game and a winning team brought large crowds and the 
games played on home grounds were never better attended. 

In the Western League, the team made a good showing, considering that it was our 
first year to play with the larger universities. After defeats by Wisconsin and Illinois 
the team won decisively from Northwestern and Minnesota, making the number of 
defeats and victories equal. 

As an aggregation of hard sluggers and base stealers, the 1900 team was seldom 
equalled and it was a base ball team of which the University may well be proud.

I lENNIS at the University has had a more rapid 

1^1 advancement during the last two years than 
1 — ■ any other form of athletic sport. It was only 
last year that interest in tennis was great 
enough to necessitate the incorporation of the 
tennis association into the Athletic Union. 
Two years ago all our contests in tennis were 
with the other colleges of Iowa, now we choose 
our competitors from the universities of the 
states about us. Through the efforts of Man- 
ager Walsh, an excellent schedule was ar- 
ranged last year, containing tournaments with Northwest- 
ern, Wisconsin and Minnesota universities. In the tourneys, 
Iowa had but three contest men, Bailey, '02., Marsh, '02., and 
Shaw, '01. 

In the Northwestern meet, our men were at a disadvan- 
tage in physicial condition from the fact that they had not 
the indoor practice which their opponents had enjoyed. In 
the meet with Northwestern we were defeated. 

According to Manager Walsh's schedule we were to 
meet Minnesota on May 19th, the day of the Iowa State 
Tennis Tournament. For this reason, Iowa had no repre- 
sentative at the state tournament and thus the champion- 
ship of the state was left undecided. Rainy weather con- 
spired to make it impossible to hold the tournament with 
Minnesota on the date fixed. To remedy this, a triangular 
tourney was arranged with Wisconsin and Minnesota. Again the Gophers failed to ap- 
pear - this time they had missed the train. The tourney with Wisconsin, however, came 
off on scheduled time. Wisconsin lost the doubles to Bailey and Shaw and won the 
singles from Shaw and Marsh, departing with honors about equally divided. 

Tennis prospects for the coming season are most gratifying. The trio of last year are 
back at the University and ready to begin training as soon as the vi^eather permits. Be- 
sides our last year's contest men, we have attending the University this year, D. H. Ellis 
and C. H. Mather, entered from Penn College, who are already expert players. Mr. Ellis 
won the state championship in singles at Grinnell last spring. The extension and im- 
provement of the Athletic park has given us nine new courts, two of which will be 
reserved for the ladies. Everything points to a very successful tennis season.

F oo t b 1 1 

We began the football season of 1900 with the 
same coach and practically the same team which 
made such a glowing- record in 1899. We expected 
greater achievements during the long hard schedule 
before them and these expectations were realized. 
Never have the teams of the other Iowa institutions, 
which a few years ago furnished the hardest games 
for Old Gold and not infrequently defeated her, 
received such decisive defeats as they did this year at 
the hands of the Hawkeyes. Upper Iowa University, 
Iowa State Normal School, Simpson College, Drake 
University and Iowa College were in turn vanquished 
by overwhelming scores and it is with unbounded 
gratification that we have heard from these colleges 
nothing but praise and admiration for the Iowa team. 

At no time was the team overconfident and from 
the very beginning it played with a definite end in 
view. This end was the establishment of a satis- 
factory ranking with the Middle- Western teams. The 
men went into every game with a determination to 
prevent their antagonists from carrying the ball over 
the goal line, and often within a few feet of the for- 
bidden territory, the strength of the Iowa defense 
was put to a test. The Iowa team on such occasions, 
never failed to "hold 'em" and at the end of the 
season we could tell the folks at home about a goal 
line uncrossed by an enemy for two successive years. 

In almost every game, Iowa scored quicker and 
easier in the second half. This fact reflects great 
credit upon Coach Knipe. Despite th^i fact that the team had been in hard training since 
the middle of August, there was not the slightest indication of over training. Dr. Knipe 
taught the team a versatile style of play and Iowa won a reputation not for any one 
peculiar formation but for the successful execution of many formations. We won from 
Chicago by the "guards back" formation then surprised Michigan a week later by an 
entirely new set of plays. 

Dr. Knipe taught the Iowa football players the "Pennsylvania style of play" which 
he interprets as being not the "guards back," "tackles over," or any oiher formation but 
the centering together of all efforts and interests of the several colleges of the University 
— petty strife and jealousies eliminated — in the loyal support of the team. Grand stand 
plays and individual honors are disapproved of. 

Clyde Williams, as field captain and quarterback, won for himself immortal glory by 
his ability as field general, to choose the proper plays and put them into execution. His 
work in handling punts and his generalship won for him the position of quarterback 
and captain on the All- Western team. Edson, Morton and Warner maintained their 
brilliant '99 records and were chosen for places on the All-Western team.

IN a brief sketch of football as developed at the University of Iowa it may not 
be amiss to call the reader's attention to the great age of the game itself. 
The few following facts are taken from a short account of this game by 
Horace Butterworth. The game is first mentioned by English writers in 
1175 when the men were spoken of as playing football on Shrove Tuesday. 
The Puritan writer, Stubbes, speaks of "football playing and other devil- 
ish pastimes." James I. called it a game better for laming than making 
able the user. The game was very popular during the sixteenth, seven- 
teenth and eighteenth centuries. The first half of the nineteenth century 
witnessed the game developed along two distinct lines at the great schools, 
Rugby and Eaton. The former played a game that permitted the ball to be 
carried while at Eaton it was only a kicking game. In 1863 the "Football Association" 
adopted the kicking, "Association" game and in 1871 the "Rugby Football Union" 
arranged games between England and Scotland. 

We 3Poot=3Ball ^Team of 1890 

In probably 1875 Harvard learned the Rugby game from the Canadians and in the 
following year, 1876, induced Yale to play with Harvard at New Haven, the first intercol- 
legiate game of Rugby football played in this country. The Intercollegiate Football 

Association, consisting of Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Wesleyan, and Pennsylvania was 
formed in 1884; through this Association has been developed our American game of Rugby 

Just when the first game of football was played at the University of 
Iowa has not been definitely ascertained but this may be said with cer- 
tainty, that the game so far as played prior to 1886 or 1887 was strictly the 
Association game. In these years, however, some modifications were 
made in the rules and to such an extent that in the summer of 1889, the 
rules of the game were collected and published by F. G. Pierce (C. '92) 
under the title " The Game of Football as Played at the University of Iowa.'" 
The rules were authorized and adopted for the season of 1889-90 by a com- 
mittee, consisting of Ira D. Orton, Edwin L. Sabin and Frank G. Pierce. 

Everything was now favorable for the development of a local game, 
but this tendency received a sudden and inevitable check, as men came from the Eastern 
colleges who knew the Rugby game. In the fall of 1889, Mr. Martin Wright Sampson, 
now Professor of English in the University of Indiana, entered Iowa University as in- 
structor in English. Mr. Sampson, knowing the Rugby game, soon induced the football 
men of the University to drop their old game and take up the new. Mr. Sampson was 
made Captain and a game arranged with Grinnell, which also played this new game. 
The game was played at Grinnell and lost to that school by a score of 24-0. 

The team returned to Iowa City and prepared to play the return game on the home 
grounds Thanksgiving day, this game, however, was postponed because of storm. It will 
seem perhaps characteristic of these days of the game's infancy, that the players them- 
selves during the season of 1889-90, bore all expenses, and each man carried his share of 
any risk incurred. There was no financial report at the end of the season as none but 
players had any responsibilities with respect to these matters. The team that should 
represent the University was selected by a committee for this purpose, this custom was 
followed until the season of 1892. 

The second year was marked by only two games, except with department or city teams. 

In 1880 the Grinnell game again went to our opponents but the University men were 

learning as the score was now 14-6. The second game was the first 
Thanksgiving day game played by the University, the game being 
with Iowa Wesleyan and resulted in a victory for the University with 
the present unequaled score of 91-0. 

The game had now reached the stage where team work may be said 
to have begun, but no scientific coaching, training or equipment had 
as yet made an appearance. 

The completion of the Y. M. C. A building and the installment of 
H. F. Kallinberg as Physical Instructor first introduced the idea of 
training as a necessity for football players, but that it was not dreamed 
of as carried on to-day is shown by the fact that after the game with 
Minnesota, at Iowa City in 1891, in the evening a banquet was tendered 
the visiting team. It was Kallinberg who first taught the University 
men the rudiments of tackling. Compared with all previous years, the 
team of 1891 was given a hard schedule. The season included games 
with Cornell, Grinnell, Nebraska, Kansas, and Minnesota. The scores 

made were: Iowa, 64, Cornell, 0; Iowa, 4, Grinnell, 6 — the University men were still 
improving — Iowa, 0, Minnesota, 42; Iowa, 22, Nebraska, 0; Iowa, 18, Kansas, 14. That the 
game was gaining interest is shown by the fact that the Vidette-Reporter of Decembers, 
of that year for the first time published the scores made in five of the Thanksgiving 
games by other colleges. The Kansas game of this year was played Deceraber|J4, at 
Kansas City, a "post season" game. It way perhaps with truth be said that the 
football spirit really was aroused for the first time during this season. The introduc- 
tion of games outside the bord°r of the state, together with the enthusiastic work of 
the team and its captain, F. G. Pierce, firmly established the sport at the University. 

The season of 1892 opened auspiciously by the Iowa men defeating Coe College 
and also Knox, each by the score of 48-0. It was, however, the weakness of the oppo- 
nent that gave the seeming strength of the team, the winner's victories being quickly 
followed by defeats at the hands of Kansas and Missouri by the respective scores of 
24-4 and 22-0, the team later in the season rounded into better form, defeating Grin- 
nell 18-12 on the home grounds and playing Nebraska to a standstill in a tie game 
10-10 at Omaha on Thanksgiving day. This team had the benefit of a few days coach- 
ing by Dalton, of Princeton, although as the term is used at the present time it could 
not be called truly coaching. Dalton was in fact with the team just eleven days. The 
players now began to realize that more systematic coaching and training must be 
taken advantage of if the University was to hold its own with the other state institutions 
upon the gridion. 

Those most interested felt that a coach should be procured earlier in the season, 
Dalton having arrived October 11, steps were therefore taken to begin the s'^ason of 1893 
by more systematic work, and with this end in view the Captain, Lloyd Elliot, engaged 
"Sport" Donnelly of the Chicago Athletic Club to coach the team during the first two 
weeks of October. In ignorance of the the truth that a coach can not make a team in 
two weeks, hope ran high that this should be a "championship" season for the Iowa 
team. Hasty and ineffective coaching combined with disregard of the fundamental 
principles of training bore their true fruit; victories over Coe and Luther Colleges were 
followed by crushing defeats at the hands of the University of Kansas, Denver Athletic 
Club, Iowa College and the University of Nebraska, the respective scores being 35-24; 
S6-0; 36-14; and 20-18. The only morsel of comfort was the defeat of the University of 
Missouri on the home grounds by the score of 34-12. 

The disastrous trip to Denver and its attendant game with an ath- 
letic club was both the beginning and end of the University of Iowa's 
experience in football with athletic clubs. 

As marks of the development of football spirit, the local papers of 
November 18, calls attention to the posting of a bulletin in Max Mayer's 
store window within three hours after the Kansas-Nebraska game, giv- 
ing results. In the evening following the Missouri game an informal 
reception was given the teams at the St. James Hotel. A terse local 
at the end of the season remarks that we only lost $50 on the season. 

The season of '94 began with a coach, Roger Sherman, of the Uni- 
versity of Michigan, on the field September 20. Football in the middle 
west may be said to have really begun to take on university form in the 

years of 1894-95. Iowa in 1894 for the first time as should have been done years before 
looked East for games. After losing to Ames and defeating Augustana College and Cor- 
nell, Iowa for the first time met Chicago University and played a tie game 18-18. The 
Chicago game vs^as followed hy a game with University of Wisconsin at 
Madison /wo days later, Wisconsin wining 40-0, this was the first and last 
game between Iowa and Wisconsin. Kansas lost to Iowa 14-12, while 
Missouri won by a score of 32-6. The annual Grinnell-Iowa game was 
played at Iowa City, the game ending in a row, and the Grinnell team 
left the field. 

The annual Thanksgiving day game at Omaha terminated with an 
overwhelming victory for Nebraska, the score 36-0. 

If the season of 1894 marked the introduction of university football 
into the West, it also was the beginning of real university football debts. 
These were so huge and startling that the faculty may be said to have 
opened the season of '95 by recommending a discontinuance of football because of bad 
management. A regulation mass meeting, however, for the movement proved a panacea 
and the fall's schedule was carried out. From lack of funds no coach was secured and 
the team passed from one defeat to another. After a victory over Parsons College fol- 
lowed an unbroken line of defeats at the hands of Doane, Ames, Kansas, Missouri and 
Nebraska, the respective scores being 10-0; 24-0; 52-0; 34-0; 6-0; perhaps the invention of 
the slogan Hee-Rah! Hi-Rah! Play Ball Iowa! invented by a Baker man at the Kansas 
game is a slight renumeration for the bad score. 

No game was played this season with Grinnell as a result of the intense personal feel- 
ing entering all contests between the two institutions. 

That it is just before dawn that the darkness is most intense was true in football at 
the University of Iowa, the gloom of the 1895 defeats furnished a dark background for the 
brilliant work of the team of 1896, coached by Bull, of Penn, captained by "Iverson, the 
man who never talked" and with a team composed of men of remarkable individual 
strength in this game. The University of Iowa came to her own. For the first time true 
conscientious and scientific training and coaching were combined. The football outlook 
by the first of October was considered the brightest on record. That the team carae up 
to its promises was shown by the defeating of, aside from Wilton College, Des Moines, 
Y. M. C. A, and Drake University, the more important schools, Kansas, 6-0; Missouri, 
12-0; Grinnell, 15-6; and two games with Nebraska on November 26, in which neither 
side scored and two days later Iowa winning, 6-0. The game with Chicago was 
very close, Chicago winning by a score of 6-0. The record of this team following 
such a disastrous one as that of 1895 speaks much for the work of every one con- 
connected with the seasons work. The fall's successes demonstrated the advan- 
tages of consistent coaching throughout the entire season, Bull having been with 
the team until after the Thanksgiving day game; but it was not yet fully recog- 
nized that the same coach should be retained at any cost. All attention was given 
to the development of the "Pennsylvania system" and as a result the fall of '97 
Wagenhurst, of Penn. was made coach and it was hoped the previous year's record 
was to be duplicated. The team's development, however, was erratic, the coaching 
failed to supplement the previous year's work, and the result was far from satisfac- 
tory. The defeat of Northwestern by a score of 12-6 early in the season was cause 
of much rejoicing at the time. This game for this fall replaced the Chicago game. 

All reason for rejoicing over success was short lived as the Kansas defeat of Iowa by a mar. 
gin of 56-0, following a defeat at the hands of P. and S. of Chicago, was followed by- 
defeats from Ames and Nebraska, the latter game being 6-0. A victory over 
Grinnell, 16-12 was but scant satisfaction in return for so many losses. The 
spasmodic work of the football team now for several seasons combined with 
years of incompetent management, had brought matters to the point where some, 
thing must be done, and the season of '98 seemed the time to do it. The "Penn- 
sylvania system" was felt to be all right and a man was needed to carry it out. 
Dr. Knipe was called from Chicago to take the team in charge. An aggregation 
of individual players but no team represented the prospects while games with 
Knox, Chicago and Drake were to be played at the opening of the season. It 
was the reconstruction period and the material to be used was in the rough. 
Small wonder then that Knox tied Iowa, 0-0, and Chicago defeated her 38-0, giv. 
ing rise to the belief that "Iowa beef furnished good practice for Stagg's men." 
Drake, followed by Rush each trailed old gold in the dust, while the defeat by 
State Normal represented the acme of football horrors. With a team now thoroughly 
chastened and purged of all self confidence. Dr. Knipe began the development of the team 
work which has made Iowa's the equal of any team in the middle west. Grinnell was 
played a tie game on her own grounds 5-S, this was felt to be a true victory for the Uni- 
versity and the defeat of Nebraska 6-5 on Thanksgiving day at Omaha closed the season 
with a feeling of satisfaction that early fall appearances little promised. Those in charge of 
athletics showed now an unexpected wisdom. Dr. Knipe was retained for '99 and there 
Tas developed hitherto unknown support among students, alumni and all connected with 
the University. Coach and team alike determined to make the Chicago game more than 
a practice game for Chicago, the result is fresh in the minds of all. The score was 5-5. The 
opponent's 5, coming as a place kick, had no power to remove the feeling that the game 
was a victory for Iowa. 

The remainder of the season was a series of clean victories for Iowa, no opponent 
scoring a single point. When the Thanksgiving day game with University of Illinois 
was won by the almost incredible score of 58-0, there was no longer any doubt that the 
University of Iowa had a team such as never before had represented the school. 

Experience had been a dear teacher but her lessons were being well learned. All felt 
there must be no change either in system or in coach, and the question regarding the 
season of 1900 was, will Knipe remain. The Board of Regents answered the question in 
the affirmative and made Dr. Knipe, Physical Director of Athletics. 

The 1900 team was well worthy of the close of the century. Chicago defeated 17-0, 
and Michigan one week later given a crushing defeat with a score of 28-5, football 
enthusiasm could go no higher. The steady march of victory was checked at the Thanks- 
giving day game with Northwestern when defeat seemed possible and was averted only 
by a tie game. This closing game, from the standpoint of pure sportmanship, although 
the score was a disappointment to the betting element, was a magnificent contest. 

That future years will not see Iowa's goal line crossed is not even to be desired, but 
remembering that it has been team work and not individual playing that has given Iowa 
her best football teams, and that the state of Iowa is full of such men as have made these 
teams, the future may be awaited with confidence. The years to come will prove that the 
teams of '96, '99 and '00 were really but the normal and not the freak teams of the 
University of Iowa.

(Awarded the gold medal offered by the Hawkeye Board for the best short story.) 

ED STEWART took a sort of grim satisfaction in pulling furiously at his 
pipe and feeling the hot smoke bite his tongue. Down stairs in the loung- 
ing room, he could hear muffled merriment, and, now and then, snatches of 
Grand Opera, sung in high falsetto with great tremolo "in correct imita- 
tion of a Prima Donna — retired because of old age," as some one expressed 
it. His big chair was drawn up close to the grate and his feet rested high up 
on the mantle piece, where his heavy golf shoes threatened that array of 
pipes and tobacco jars, so dear to the heart of the college man. 

He was thinking about it. Of course there was a girl in it— a pretty 
girl — and as a consequence, there was also another fellow. There always 
is. The girl was — well he did not analyze his thoughts — but "she was 
there with the goods in every respect." 

She was good and merry, and it was not necessary for a fellow to say pretty little 
nothings to her. Why she could give him pointers on lots of things that girls aren't 
supposed to know, and yet she never cheapened herself, and one never thought of being 
the least bit free with her. Yes, she was all right - she would most certainly do, and her 
hair — GadI What hair — just like the smoke when he blew it 
out gently, all tumbled up and rolling. 

Of course he didn't love her. Well hardly, not he, that 
wasn't his way. But she was a mighty fine girl and he liked 
her, in fact very much. But he hadn't gone any farther. He 
simply wanted to talk to her, take her to places and have a good 
time, and be good friends. She had always treated him that 
way — very friendly and frankly, and was what he wanted. But 
confound it! —There was Billy Dawson. She treated him 
friendly too, and Billy liked it. What in thunder had he cut in 
for anyhow? 

Billy was the best fellow that ever happened and his closest 
friend. They were initiated into their "frat" the same night — 
used the same vaseline — and shared the same room, and that 
was what made the present conditions, well to say the least, a 
little awkward. Billy, dear old Dawson, why he could have 
anything he wanted. Didn't Z/^" graft off of Dawson the first 
part of the month and he glad to have Billy spend his own 
allowance later? And when he was broke, and Billy was 
broke, they lived on each other's credit. If that dear old lobster 
wanted the girl he was welcome. Billy was worth more than 
all the girls that ever lived. And after all, what was the difference if she did like Billy. 
She seemed to like him too and that was all he wanted — still he wished that Billy hadn't 
cut in. 

But come to think about it, Dawson was in it from the start just as much as he was. 
They had met Mrs. Craig on the street one day, and she had stopped them and asked 
them out to a little informal gathering, given for Miss Alice Selby, a cousin of hers. 

"Alice is going to spend some time with me, and I want you boys to be nice to her," she 
said, "and as an incentive, I'll tell you that she is an adept at the chafing-dish." 

"She is? Oh we'll be there, chafing-dish? Well I guessi You couldn't keep me away 
with an arsenal," said Billy, thus proving Mrs. Craig's wisdom. And now it began to 
seem as if they couldn't. 

He remembered one night especially. He was dressing, intending to call on her. As 
he hesitated between his own white tie with Billie's pin, and 
Billie's black tie, Dawson himself came into the room. 

"Well — going out among 'em, Teddie, my boy?" he said. 

"Yes, I guess I'll try my hand a little tonight." 

"Good work," he said as he seated himself and com- 
menced to write. "So will I, as soon as I write to the 
governor. A little touch now and then, is relished by the 
best of men. I am afraid that this touch will wind up in 
ague, when he gets it. It makes me shaky to think about it." 

"Hope on brave heart. Going south?" 

"No, not yet." 

He remembered that after he had been talking to Miss 
Selby awhile, Billy had come. They left together and walked 
as far as the gate in silence. Then Billy asked for a match. 
Scratching it on the gate post, he lit a cigarette, stuffed his 
hands in his pockets, and walked on. Finally, when the 
cigarette was nearly consumed, he took a last long puff, and giving it a quick flip, it fell 
into the street, describing a glowing flickering curve as it did so. Then he spoke rapidly 
allowing the smoke to filter out through his nose. 

"Why in thunder didn't you say where you were going? I wouldn't have come over. 
You and I ought to be able to beat all entries — stand-in with the Craigs — but I tell you, 
Stewart, we want to shy at each other." And so they had fixed the plan that each was 
to have certain nights. — And this was Billie's night. 

But after all, it didn't make any difference, he was quite sure she liked him, even if 
she did like Billy. Still he wished it was his night. But it wasn't, and he was up here 
in his room all alone; Billy was having a good time, and the other fellows were down 
stairs playing a noisy game of pitch; so he pulled at his pipe, but it had gone out. 

There was a rap on the door. Without waiting for a response, Tom Wilson, in his 
old gold sweater with an I on the front, slouched into the room, lifted Ted's feet down 
from the mantel, and helped himself to the best tobacco, kept in the little jar back where 
it was most likely to be unnoticed. Selecting a paper he deftly rolled a cigarette. He 
lit it carefullv, taking two or three short pus's to see if it was all right, then tossed the 
match into the fire, leaning over as he watched it burn. Turning slowly around, he 
pushed Stewart's chair back a few feet and sat down on the rug between his legs. Then 
he laid his head on Stewart's lap, allowing his arms to rest on Ted's knees. Neither 
spoke for quite a while. At last Tom said between long puffs and longer pauses. 

"Say Stewart, you've got a lovely grouch on, haven't you. What's the matter? 

"Well Tommy, since it's you, I'll give you two guesses,'' answered Stewart. 

"Don't care Ted. Just because things seem queer sometimes, that's no sign. I 
don't believe in signs anyway," continued Wilson's deep lazy voice. "Want money 
Ted? I have two dollars and a quarter, saved up for the laundry man, but I am able to 
owe it. Do you want it?." He waited for an answer, crossed one leg over the other and 
eyed his feet, and noticed the size of the shadows they cast in the flickering fire light. 


"Do you want it?" he asked again. 

'•I g-uess you're right," said Stewart, "It is no sign I guess." 

"Great Scott, man," cried Wilson, starting up and looking around at Stewart, 
"You've got it bad— you're certainly it." 

"No I'm not, I had my fingers crossed," answered Stewart grabbing him around the 
neck, and drawing his head back and mussing his hair. 

"You're it all right," said Wilson, and tearing him- 
self loose, he went down to the smoking room, and told 
the fellows that Stewart was in a bad way; that he must 
be in love, or something equally bad, because he didn't 
hear an offer of a loan. He told them that he needed 
cheering up so they all ran upstairs and proceeded 
to dispell his abstraction, by the simple method of 
sitting on him and rubbing his head with their knuckles. 
It is one of the wa3'S "Frat" men show their love. 

The arrangement between the two friends was as 
satisfactory as anyone could wish. The events follow- 
ing their understanding proved highly interesting and 
amusing to the whole Fraternity. Bets were freely 
made as to which would take her to the ball game, and 
which to the Junior Promenade, or whether she would go 
golfing with Dawson or driving with Stewart, and a 
pool was made up as to which would win her in the end, 
all bets called off in case she would have neither. 

One night Stewart came back late from a drive with Miss Selby and found all the 
fellows at dinner. When he opened the door, someone cried "Hail Caesar!" and they all 
yelled "Aye," real long and low, just as the scene-shifters in their shirt sleeves, and 
the "supes" back in the wings yell, when the audience imagines it hears the angry voice 
of the whole Roman Populace. 

As he walked to his chair they whistled "See the Conquering Hero Comes." Hath- 
way, with the big voice, the man at the end of the long table, leaned forward, and brand- 
ishing his knife, went through the movements of a musical director. As he sat down, 
Hathway bellowed out the opening strains of Wagner's "Lohengrin,'' changing the 
words to suit the occasion. 

"Will someone kindly turn off the wind up there?" asked Stewart. 
After the meal was done and the coffee had been served, they all lounged in their 
chairs, and smoked, and sipped, and sang songs, with their arms around each other's 

"I heard a pretty good story the other day" said little Jameson. 

"L,et her go— Shoot ahead. Can't you fellows forget that singing down there for 
awhile? Go on Jameson." 

When he had finished his story he looked around rather puzzled by the lack of com- 
ment. He thought it rather queer, and not seeing a single smile, he flushed slightly and 
took a sip of coffee. 

"Say, fellows, I always did like that story I think its a pretty good one don't j^ou?" 
said Stuffy Rollins. 

"Yes, I liked it the first time I heard it," said another. 
"You be shot," said little Jameson. 

"You ought to hear Roosevelt tell that story," began Price. "An old farmer 

insisted on shaking hands with him, because he hadn't heard it since the year the old 
brindle cow died, and it brought up pleasant memories. Roosevelt got sore. I don't see 
why he should have, do you Jamie?" 

"I say Jameson." But Jameson after bumping two heads together had fled. Some- 
one started up the Iowa yell, real slow — dragging it out, and at the end coming in strong 
with the "wah, wah, wah." 

Hathway, pipe in hand, arose and proposed a toast 
to the "fair Alice." 

"May the winner she chooses be a winner and the 
looser be " 

"Oh cut it out Hathway you mucker, you're spill- 
ing that coffee down my neck," cried Rollins. 

"I beg your pardon, Stuffy, but why don't you get 
your neck out of the road?'' said Hathway sitting 

"Going to the show Rollins?" asked Billy Dawson. 

"Do you mean that for a promise, Billy?" 

"Don't I look like it?'' answered Dawson. 

"Come on Stewart." They all three arose, and 
when they were outside, both Dawson and Stewart 
thanked Rollins for interrupting Hathway's hilarity. 

Not long afterwards, Stewart came into the room 
one evening, and found Dawson stretched at full length 
on the rug before the fire, toasting himself. Throwing 
aside his coat and hat and filling his pipe very slowly 
and carefully, Stewart leaned against the fireplace and 
tried to blow smoke rings through one another. L,ook- 
ing down at Billy half asleep and comfortable, he 
asked "You're pretty contented aren't you? Feel pretty good, don't you? Say, Billy, 
we're lobsters, you and I." "What's the matter with you now?" asked Dawson sleepily. 

"Oh nothing. A little mucker by the name of Van Auster from the East has won 
her out. Reginald "Van Auster — Reggie for short. He says "Bah Jove" and "Just 
Fahncy." I met him over there tonight. Been engaged for two years — easy money." 

Billy sat up straight and dropped his pipe out of his mouth. Gradually his look of 
surprised changed to a foolish grin. At last he burst forth "Good Lord — And they call 
it Reggie — How are you Ted?" 

"Billy you're dead easy." 

"Reggie? Good Lord! Reggie? say Stewart chuck me down some more tobacco."

There's a tremulous stillness, a mystical g-limmer, 
There's the call of a bird through the forest's arcade, 
And a star in the east flashing pale in the shimmer. 
Where the fingers of Dawn on Night's curtain are laid. 

Ah, the night brings oblivion, rest, and nepenthe! 
With its shadows so soothing, its stillness so sweet; 
But its calm has no power like the thrill that is sent thee, 
When the pulse of the world's just beginning to beat. 

Dreary shadows of yesterday fade in the morning. 
As the mists are dispelled at the touch of the sun. 
Winged Hope rises free in the joy of the dawning, 
When with rose-glow and bird-song, glad day is begun.

Dreams, dreams for me after the day's dull drowse, 

After the sunset's vivid crimsoning. 

In the clear grayness of the twilight, rouse 

The quiet bird's, and stirring softly sing. 

So sing mv dreams to me. 


Dreams, dreams for me, after the summer's glow 
And ecstasy of multitudinous strife. 
Does death flame through the autumn forest? Oh, 
'Tis death, perchance — perchance, a lovelier life. 
So die my dreams to me. 


Dreams, dreams for me, after a thousandth flower 
Hangs on the stalk imperfect; still there's one 
Blooms in the gardener's mind, and in some hour 
May slip its bud, all imperfection done. 
So bloom my dreams to me.

Miss Nelle Terrence, 

Scranton, Pa. 
My Dear Nelle: — 

How can you be so fickle-minded after pro- 
testing to me almost since the beginning of 
time that you would remain a companionable 
old maid? It is really quite unpardonable, but 
then you were never like me and you would not 
have been thoroughly happy as a bachelor girl 
though I am convinced more than ever that life 
means to be alone. 

It is lovely of you to choose me among all 
your friends to be maid of honor. I shall do 
my best to carry off the situation with eclat. Do you know I always thought it would be 
fun to get married just for the excitement of being the central figure in a very pretty 
ceremony. I can see you shake your head hopelessly and say that is because I have never 
been in love. Perhaps it is. I believe I have my heart yet. I feel it beat sometimes. 

I heard from Madge the other day. She and Jack and the baby still live in that 
miserable, stupid little town and eat and sleep and go to church. I'd eat and go to church 
and sleep, wouldn't you? And the funniest part of it is she is perfectly happy. I 
couldn't endure it for an instant. I must travel and see something of life. As the wife 
of a U. S. Consul you will see some of the world and meet many interesting and delight- 
ful people and I think I quite envy you that. 

I must, must travel. Don't be surprised if I call on you some day in Vienna. I am 
sure I wish you all the happiness and joy one life can hold. 

As ever, IvOUiSE Dougi^as. 

Omaha, Feb. 1, '01 

Dear Nelle: — 

You really must forgive me for neglecting to answer your delightful letter. You 
know I am entirely devoid of genius and am trying to make up for the lack by hard work. 
I have advanced from the seven dollar a week stage and am doing the society columns 
now. But my travelling is still away off in the dim .-ind misty future. I have only been 
in three adjoining states you know and I met a girl the other day who had been round 
the world and she had always wanted to stay at home. Ironical fate! She reminded me 
of Madge. That type of girl always made me antagonistic. They want everbody to 
follow their example, stay at home and join a reading circle and a sewing society. 

I have another incentive too, for working. Father and Mother often say, now that 
they have lost all their property, that their only pleasure is their children. They have 
all amounted to something but me, but still they hope and expect so much from me that I 
nerve myself and think perhaps after all I shall succeed in my newspaper work. At 
times though I am oppressed and overwhelmed with a sense of my incompetency, and 
then I wonder what's the use trying. 

Well, I must have the blues. I went to the theatre last evening with a dear little 
sissy boy. I felt as though I ought to be escorting him. You need not think I am a man 

hater because I have no well defined ideal of a man but it is safe to say I have never seen 
a possible ideal one; and I shall be quite well satisfied if I never do. I haven't time to be 
bothered. I have some eternal copy to get out but I'll write you again in a day or so. 

Sincerely, "Lou." 

Omaha, Feb. 9. 

My Dear Nelle: — 

I am so sorry but I am afraid I cannot get away to attend your wedding. They keep 
me so busy all the time and you know my bread and butter depend upon my work. Some 
day I am going to have money to do as I please but then my people will be gone and I 
shall be too old to enjoy it. You probably think I am a railer against fate, but I speak 
the truth nevertheless. 

I hope I do not inconvenience you very much. You said Blanche could take my place 
if something happened I could not come, and doubtless she will be very happy to do so. 

Believe me always, "Lou." 

Omaha, Feb. 18. 

My Dearest Nelle: — 

I would so like to be with you the twenty-first. I know you will look very beautiful 
in your wedding gown, and then to think I shall not see you for so long! You must 
sometimes think of me and regret a little that you left me to fight out my battles alone. 
But you will be very happy as you deserve to be, and you know I wish you all that is best. 

I have a very little good news to tell you. I go to the "Pan American" at Buffalo 
this summer as special correspondent for the "Bee." Perhaps I shall yet amount to 
something. No thanks, I'm not going to marry. There is too much in the world to see 
and experience — to be contented to settle down, like Madge, for instance. 

Good bye dear, you will never be the same to me again, but it was probably meant 
so. Best wishes and bon voyage. 

From, "Lou." 

Buffalo, N. Y., August 11, '00. 

My Dear Nelle: — 

Why don't you write to me? I sent all my letters up in the Alps for you said you were 
going to spend the summer there, but you must have 
received them by this time. Well, what do you 
think of me? A perfect idiot, I'll wager. He is 
as poor as a church mouse and is going to Indian 
Territory es a medical missionary to those poor 
heathen and I am supposed to teach the squaws to 
wash their faces, and in return for my pains shall 
promptly be scalped, I suppose. I know you 
are laughing at me, but I am perfectly happy to 
have you do so, though I feel wicked every time I 
think of my people and how disappointed they 
must be. The missionary's wife is allowed one 
new dress a year Just think how I'll shine! But 
I'm always a philosopher, and perhaps I shall 
write up these people, at any rate I shall be happy. 

Sincerely, "Lou." —Rita Kei^ley. 

QuQLker Polly 

Pretty Polly was a Quaker — 

Wore a Quaker g'own; 
Hid her brown curls in a "shaker'' 

When she went to town. 
For a saint you might mistake her 

With her eyes cast down. 

When Pretty Polly passed, the clover 

Bloomed more fair and sweet; 
The very leaves rejoiced above her 

To fall beneath her feet; 
The rustic stile, when she passed over. 

Knew its charm complete. 

Polly had, as you may guess it, 

Ivovers not a few. 
Half the town felt honored— bless it — 

Just to tie her shoe. 
Yes, I loved, I must confess it. 

Pretty Polly, too. 

Should I try to woo her, surely 
She would not be mine. 

What her eyes told, hid demurely 
I could ne'er divine. 

Yet she spoke enchanting- purely 
"Thee" and "thou" and "thine 

In her language quaintly spoken 

I was all unlearned, — 
Though my words in speech were broken 

Love my phrases turned. 
And I sure would know the token 

If her love I earned. 

So while fears a thousand fill me 

I tell my love tale true: 
"Do you — hast thou — are you — will thee 

Love me? I love you." 
Her roguish answers — how they they thrill me! — 

"I have — I will- I do." 

— Edna Page. 

Seacson Sketches 


"We stood in the door of the boat-house watching for our friends. Not a sound was 
heard but the splash of a gentle rain on the river and the dripping from the branches 
of the overhanging trees on the banks. The moon was struggling to shine through the 
mist, casting a dull grey light over all. Finally we saw a boat coming around a bend, 
and could discern the outline of an umbrella. 


Just at sunset I was idly swinging in a hammock in the corner of a large country 
yard. The trees made a dark green canopy overhead, the leaves softly whispering to 
each other in the slight breeze. 

The pink and white old-fashioned lady-slippers smiled on their tall green stalks. The 
budding moss roses like tinted snowflakes, were about to burst from their green covering. 

The road passing the farm grew more and more indistinct and it seemed but a brown 
ribbon skirting meadow and cornfield until in the distance it was lost in the woods. Great 
bands of sunlight extended boldly acrcss the western sky, the light resting like a mantle 
of gold on the green cornfields. 


The river was a long beautiful mirror for the mass of autumnal splendor on either 
bank, the dark red and deep yellow being reflected in all their gorgeous beauty. The sun 
twinkled through the overhanging branches, making bright jewels on the water. A 
slight breeze shook the boughs and leaves of many shades and tints fluttered and danced 
down the river to the low music of the waves. 

A light canoe was lazily drifting near the shore, the young man and girl almost 
hidden by the bright autumn foilage and golden rod carelessly thrown into the boat. 


"It's snowing!'' We hurried to the window to see the pure white flakes falling with 
feathery lightness thick and fast. Already the little village was covered with a soft, white 
cloak. There was no one in sight, and the snow was smooth and unbroken by tracks or 
marks of any kind. It came faster and faster, till we could not distinguish the outlines 
of the buildings and the tall church spire was the last to melt into the whiteness that 
gradually enveloped all.

Years and a. Dacy 

DJUSTING her parasol once more to break the force of the sun which was 
beaming warmly on the waters of the lake, Isabel said, "I believe I would 
rather not try to fish any more, Joanna. I confess I do not like the fish. 
They are cold and squirmy. Of course, one should not hesitate at what is 
useful and best, but I csuld wish they would not writhe and glasp." 

"You always had a weak spot in you, Isabel," said Joanna. "You 
would not do for my profession. What would you say to cutting- up a live 
Hindoo, as I often was obliged to do in my practice in India? The main 
thing is the resolve. Women have lacked resolution too long. It has been 
the bane of the sex." 

"Of course, if it were best," said Isabel, doubtfully, "Yes, I am quite sure that one 
should be willing to sacrifice feeling to duty. Women have been slaves to the emotions 
too long. How you must have pitied those poor Oriental women in their benighted 
system.' ' 

"Indeed, it was simply horrible," said Joanna. "They have no idea of the growth of 
modern thought in the matter of woman's place in life, and really they have no interest 
in it. To be sure I did all I could in my limited way to teach them that they should not 
be barred from any rank of life occupied by men. I told them to subdue their emotions; 
to cast aside love of men, and to live the higher life of woman." 

"And you hardly succeeded, did you?" 

"It was most discouraging. Indeed that was one reason why I resolved to come back 
to America. After all, progress is best followed among the progressive. You've no idea 
how glad I was to see you again, and to find you were keeping up your studies. I am 
especially glad to see that you have quite put aside and forgotten that old afi^air of 
yours, and have remained unmarried. Sometimes I think marriage is altogether a matter 
of the emotions. This alone should stigmatize it for a thinking woman. Yon have quite 
forgotten him — it — I fancy." 

"Oh! quite — yes, indeed! EJntirely so," said Isabel, quickly. "I never allow myself 
to think of him — it, I mean. I never permit myself any news of his people, and do not 
even know where— where he has been for years. It is fully six years, I should say, since 
we parted. But shall we not pull back to the hotel?" 

"Suppose we pull over to the point and rest under the trees for a while. It seems 
very pleasant. There is a tent on the shore. Some camping party, I presume. We 
might get a sketch, and I fancy it will be cooler over there." Isabel, making no objection 
to this, Joanna with a long stroke pulled over to the shady point, where these two well- 
dressed and rather comely young women, by no means so severe of countenance as of 
speech, folded their trim umbrellas and sat down beneath the oaks. Joanna began 
her sketch, talking less and less as she grew more interested in her work. She was 
becoming fairly well-satisfied with her picture of the odd-looking little tent and the 
curious woodman's devices which were scattered about it, and was upon the point of 
putting the last touch upon the sketch, when she was interrupted by Isabel, who spoke in 
a low, awed tone of voice. 

"Joanna," said she, "its awfully weak of me, I know, but there — there's a cow." 

"Where," exclaimed Joanna, hastily starting to her feet. Then, regaining more of 

her accustomed equanimity, she stared through her g-lasses at that inoffensive beast. The 
cow was looking, with wide-open eyes, at these intruders on a favorite feeding ground. 
"What shall we do?" asked Isabel, timidly. 

"We might get behind a tree," said Joanna, "but still that might be of > o use, for the 
animal could pursue us about the tree. On the whole I think we would better go into the 

"Joanna-really!" exclaimed 
Isabel. "The owner might 
come and find us. Consider how 

"One should not let small 
reasons outweigh great ones," 
said Joanna, still calmly. "The 
owner is not here. No doubt, if 
we hide, the creature will soon 
go away." Isabel yielded as 
usual to the superior logic of 
her companion, and, a moment 
later, both had taken refuge in 
the tiny canvas house. 

But their studies in natural 
history had not made them 
familiar with the habits of the domestic cow, one of which is to eat tender grass wherever 
it is found in quantities. This particular cow was well pleased with her surroundings. 
After grazing for a time, she lay down and began blissfully chewing her cud, all the 
while facing toward the tent where the two impatient prisoners were confined. 

"I should not mind it in the least if I did not fear the owner of the tent would come 
back," said Isabel. "It's very neat and clean in here, is'nt it? I thought tents were 
always mussy. Joanna, don't you hear thunder? I really believe its going to rain. 
There's an extremely black cloud coming up." 

Joanna pushed aside the canvas flap and looked out. "Really this is most annoying, " 
said she. "It certainly is going to rain. What a situation, indeed!" 

And rain it did, conscientiously and thoroughly, so that had not the little tent been 
pitched by a well practiced hand, its two unwilling occupants must have been thoroughly 

"That cow doesn't seem to mind it," said Isabel. "Joanna do you think one could be 
so strong-minded as not to mind a rain like that?" 

"Of course! It is all a matter of the environment," said Joanna. 
"Joanna," said Isabel, a moment later, "I hear something!" 

They both heard it — the slosh! slosh! of feet approaching, coming through the puddles 
in the grass. The worst had happened. The owner of the tent was coming. Each put a 
hand on the other's arm, and in silence they waited, hardly breathing. The cow got up 
and wandered away. Isabel wondered why the cow did this at one man's coming when 
the presence of two women all the afternoon had not disturbed her in the least. The steps 
came to the door. The flap was pulled aside. 

The face of a gentleman can not be mistaken. Joanna wondered why at first this 
gentleman's face was so politely unsurprised and calm under his unexpected discovery 

and why, at the next moment, it flushed red in such confusion, as her companion shifted 
her position and came into better view. 

"I beg your pardon, ladies," said the new comer, politely but coldly. "I see that you 
have been caught in the shower, and I am glad you were wise enough to come into the 
tent. There is no other shelter on this side of the lake. I beg you to make yourselves 

Before either could say a word he was gone. Joanna noticed with approbation this 

Of the two young women now left in their awkward situation, Joanna was the more 
calm. Isabel was silent and pale, and evidently disturbed. Perhaps she would finally 
have influenced her companion to join her in a desperate sally out into the rain had not 
the sound of footsteps been heard returning through the wet grass. 

The owner of the tent threw down his armful of wood, and came to the door. "The 
rain will be over in a moment now, ladies," said he, "but the lake is growing rough and 
the air will soon be much cooler. I am presuming that you are from the hotel, but, if you 
will pardon me, I don't dare to let j'ou start over alone. I think you would better let me 
make you a cup of coffee, and then I will be glad to pull you over, if you will permit 
me. My name is Canfield. I have been camping here for several days, quite alone." 

To Joanna there was eminent reason in all the man had said. She spoke before Isabel 
could begin a word. 

"Thank you very much, sir," said she, graciously, "My friend. Miss Lussan, sir." 

"Miss Graydon, sir," murmured Isabel, in a voice so low as to be scarcely audible. 
Their host bowed. Joanna noticed again with approbation, the dignity and calmness of 
his bearing. 

Canfield turned away to the building of his fire, which, in spite of the wet, he accom- 
plished with all the ease of an experienced woodsman. There was a bright blaze in a 
few minutes, and, to the women in the tent, clad in light summer gowns, the air was now 
cool and damp enough to make the blaze seem cheerful. 

Ca,nfield busied himself about the fire, not speaking to the occupants of the tent, and 
not casting a glance in that direction. Presently a fragrant odor arose under the trees. 
The coffee was boiling. Also, in a mysterious way some eggs had been cooked to a nicety 
and there was a suspicion of a thin slice or so of bacon, and some nicely browned potatoes. 
Then Canfield came to the tent, and by some magic, turned the fly into a porch over the 
front of the tent. He threw back the divided front, fastening it to the fly on the wind- 
ward side, and lo! there was a sheltered dining room, with a mackintosh for a floor. A 
box was found, which, by further magic, turned into a table, from under which came 
bread, butter, marmalade, dishes, even napkins. 

"Decidedly the man is a gentleman,'' thought Joanna, though she could not under- 
stand his restraint of manner. 

Before Canfield completed his brief arrangements for accompanying his charges to 
the hotel, he asked to be excused for a moment, and, creeping into the back part of the 
tent, under the slanting roof , he brought out a boot, whose top had been braced apart by 
twigs into the fashion of a cage. From this he took a little grey chattering object, which 
nibbled at his fingers, and then crawled along his arm till it lay against his neck. 

"I must feed my pet," said he taking the squirrel tenderly in his hand. "Come, little 
fellow. Do you see, he has a broken leg; some boys work, I suppose. I found the poor 
creature under the trees, and I put his leg into splints, the best I could. Since then I have 
taken care of him, and I fancy he will get along, though I fear he will always be a 
cripple. You know you can cripple things, but they still get along after a fashion. Jackie, 

old fellow, how's the leg? There, there, now, he must eat some supper and be a good boy!" 

Joanna adjusted her glasses critically and essayed an examination, at which Jackie 
set up a fierce chattering, not allowing himself to be touched, but crawling under his pro- 
tector's coat. The man's face softened. "Easy, old man !" said he. "There, now, good 
little Jackie, you'd best go back to bed again." His hands were very gentle as he put the 
little animal back into its resting place. 
Joanna noticed the boot was stuffed half 
full of silk handkerchiefs. 

The last drops of the rude shower 
were now pattering on the canvas roof, 
augmented by the burden of the leaves 
swaying in the rising wind. The owner 
of the tent employed himself for a mo- 
ment making fast the ropes or the sturdy 
little domicile, and lastly raked together 
the embers of the fire in good hunter fash- 
ion. As he moved about in the wet grass 
Isabel spoke for almost the first time of 
her own accord. "His boots must be quite 
wet through," she murmured to Joanna. 
"He has been out in the rain over an 

"Really most imprudent," said Joanna. "Some of the most stubborn pulmonary 
complaints I have found in my practice arose from chills due to cold extremities. I pre. 
sume I should caution him." And this she did, receiving for her pains the only hearty 
laugh their reserved host had vouchsafed during their stay. "Never mind that," said he; 
"but come, we should be starting for the hotel." 

The wind had now freshened, and the sunset was not altogether pleasant to look 
upon as the three stepped down to the little beach. The waves were rolling white, and 
the boat was pounding on the shore. Joanna realized that she could never have pulled 
the boat acrose such a sea, and this fact, with the alternative of a seven miles walk 
through the swamps around the lake, did much to reconcile her to the unwelcome situa- 
tion in which she and her friend found themselves. Isabel was silent after her fashion. 
Neither young woman thought to resent the quiet tone of command in which their boat- 
man gave his orders to them. 

"It will be a stiff pull outside," said he, looking grave as he glanced out over the 
rolling waste of white waves into which the wind had suddenly turned the little lake; but 
it will not be in the least dangerous if you do as I tell you and keep quiet. Now then, 
each of you wrap one of these blankets around you, for it's going to be cold before we get 
across. Miss Graydon, please sit in the stern; and if you will please sit here toward the 
bow, Miss Lussan, we will trim ship better. You would best put this mackintosh about 
your shoulders, also, but pray do not be alarmed if we take in a little spray, for we shall 
all be perfectly safe I assure you." 

The dangers of the pull across the wild little lake were such as the oarsman himself 
best understood, but his calmness had the proper effect upon his passengers. Joanna 
was at first thoroughly frightened, but perceiving that they were none the worse oS^ from 
moment to moment, acquired finally a certain cheerfulness of a nervous chattering sort. 
Isabel on the other hand still remained quite silent. Her eyes cast down, her face covered 
with her hand. After the dimness of the evening had shut down, she was conscious. 

with a faint little feeling of safety, of a brown neck in front of her rising- and falling 
steadily, of a broad back ridging and relaxing tirelessly, of strong arms sweeping in 
sharp but rhythmic stroke. The boat rose and fell, slipped onward over a wave, or 
stopped as a pounding hand of water smote it on the bows. The white spray sometimes 
flew in, yet Isabel Lussan was not sure that she felt a fear. 

It was nearly dark when the long pull ended at the hotel stairs. The sudden change 
in the temperature had sent most of the summer people into the warmer regions of the 
house. Joanna started to thank their host and oarsman, as they disembarked and stood 
at the foot of the stairway, shivering a little in spite of their warm covering. To the end 
of her life, she never recovered from the sense of injury which took the place of the 
feeling of surprise she felt as she saw Isabel step in front of her. 

"We thank you," said Isabel Lussan, in a low voice. "I thank you very much. If — 
if you think you can, I think — I think I shall be very glad if you will call."

The FreshmaLi\ in. Bl\ie 

The bugle sounds from back of Central Building and all companies form for 
dress parade. They marched out on the campus, the band playing a stirring 
march, which awakens patriotism under those fluify parasols, 
gay hats and fresh shirt waists on the Library walk and Science 
Hall steps as well as in the breasts of those wearing the blue. 

The measured tread of the march, muffled by the grass, the 
white gloved hand of each man correctly at his side, the even 
movement of the white stripes down their trousers as every step 
is taken together and in time, causes breathless "Oh's! and Ah's!" 
from the fair admirers. 

It is the Freshman's first parade. Proudly he carries his 
gun, boldly and confidently he obeys orders. Then thunders the 
command "Column left, march!" As he obeys with military 
precision he sees a dainty white parasol shading a smart sailor 
hat and pink shirt waist as Helen Hunt leisurely walks up 
Central Walk. 

"Oh! why doesn't she look!" He gazes steadily at her as she 
slowly turns her head. As her eyes meet his, he smiles his frank 
boyish smile, and the captain reports "Three demerits for 
Dunham smiling in ranks!"

June Lorvgings 

OWN from the heart of a June-blue sky 

Falls note of bird, g'lad-sing-ing-; 
Through leafag-e sun-lit, golden-green, 

Rose-fragrant breaths go winging: 
Just such a day as when, sweet-heart, 

Love's pledge between us spoken. 
You lifted trembling lips to mine 

And gave me love's dear token. 

Ah! Many Junes since then have filled 

The mead with dew-brushed flowers. 
But naught to me their gladness brings 

Save sad, heart-hungry hours. 
My soul to meet your soul gropes on 

In weary, pain-sweet yearning. 
The long years spent to no avail 

The bitter lesson learning. 

O that our mutual love might bridge 

The score of summers over. 
And you and I once more might stand 

Knee-deep in June-tide clover; 
Fyes, looking long in other's eyes 

Speak love that faileth never; 
These empty arms might hold you close. 

And time be June, forever. 

— Polygon. 

O n. e D a. y 

One halcyon day! 
And yet, the skies were gray; 
Winds, moaning wild with woe. 
Hurtled the rain -drops to and fro, — 
In sooth, no gladdening weather, — 
But, we were together.

The Hundredth 

ST was near the close of a warm afternoon in September. I was sti]l tired 
and weak from the effects of a recent fever, and I lay swinging myself to 
and fro in the hammock in front of the house. I listened wearily to the 
shrill rasping of the locusts in the maples, wishing I were well and nine 
instead of nineteen so that I could join in the noisy game of "Hide-and-Go- 

Seek" that my little brothers and and sisters were playing in the back 

Eddie came tiptoeing noiselessly around the corner of the house, and 
crouched behind a big lilac bush near me. Walter was "it." He was 
counting aloudas fast as his tongue could — "forty-eight, forty-nine, fifty!" 
the clear boyish voice rang out, "bushel- 
o'-wheat, bushel-o'-rye all who aint ready holler I! All 
within ten f eet o' my goal 's caught." In a moment he 
came flying past me, he looked cautiously about, then 
Spying the motionless little figure behind the bush, he 
darted back again yelling "I see Eddie! one, two, three 
for Eddie!" I heard him pound out the three times on 
the shed door. 

Eddie had started to make goal first if possible, but 
he stopped suddenly, and stood looking down the road; 
then he rushed away shouting. 

"Boys! Em! Nona! Mr. Ashley 's coming." That 
was the end of the game; the five children, bare-headed 
and barefooted, ran through the gate and down the hill 
to meet him. 

The old man in the open buggy was driving his 
team of fat white horses over the bridge at their 
customary jog-trot. HTe looked straight ahead of him 
as he neared the childten, pretending neither to see 
nor hear them; he drove past them as they stood aside in the dusty weeds; then, laughing 
at the top of his voice, he suddenly pulled up. 

"Hello, youngsters!'' he said. "What you doin' here? Runnin' away from home?" 

"We came to meet you," answered Eddie from the back of the buggy as he helped 
Joe and Walter to scramble up after him. 

"You did, eh? Well, I'd like to know why a big boy like you aint out in the field this 
time o' day." 

He reached down for Em— "Come on Emmy," and putting her on the seat beside 
him, he next lifted in four-year-old Nona and took her upon his knee, and putting one 
arm around her, h; drove on. When he stopped at the hitching-post, the boys 
tumbled over each other in their eagerness to jump out and tie the horses for him. 

"That's right, boys," he said getting out carefully with Nona in one arm, "always 
help other folks —'specially when its a little feller like me." 

They all giggled; the old man was six feet two and weighed nearly three hundred 
pounds; "Some poor chap like me," he went on, "that aint got three big boys, like your 
pa has." 



He came up the walk with Nona still in his arms. Em was hanging to one finger of 
his free hand, and the boys beside him were teasing him to take them fishing. 

"All right " he answered, "I will take you sometime — fer Joe's jest the right size, 
bout as big as a small frog;" and a great chuckle worked upward from the region of his 
boots. He came up to the hammock, and piled Nona, and then Em in upon me. 

"I'm out fishin' myself now," he remarked, "but not for any such small fry as you 
boys, I'm after your sister. How are you, Jessie, any stronger?" 

He sal down on the bench nearby, and taking off his big straw hat wiped his fore- 
head with his red handkerchief. 

"She sent me up to get you to come and stay a spell with us," he "vent on, "run in 
for you bonnet, and don't stop to primp, come jest as you are. Tell your ma she don't 
need you 'round here any more'n a cow needs a necktie. Mrs. Ashley, she wants some 
one to fuss over, seein' there aint none of the neighbors sick, and she aint got nothin' 
to do, only the house-work, an' me an' the hired hand to cook for. Guess she needs you 
pretty bad. Want to come?" 

I never yet heard of anyone who did not want to go the Ashley farm. I went into 
the house, saying I'd be ready in ten minutes. 

Mother helped me to get ready and then she came out into the yard with me. Mr. 
Ashley rose and shook hands with her heartily. 

"Well, how are you, Olive Ann? You look kinder beat out. S'pose all these young- 
sters keep you busy as a cow in a corn patch." He sat down on the bench beside her. 
"See you're goin' to let us have Jessie awhile. She sorter belongs to us anyway; — I'll 
turn her out in the pasture with the colts to get strong — that's what she'd like," and his 
blue eyes twinkled with fun. 

"S'pose Charley's in the field. No, no, — can't stop — got to be joggin' along home — 
it'll be chore time agin we git there. Good bye, Olive. Tell Charley I don't say he jest 
lied 'bout that boss he sold me, but he talked pretty much the way I talk when I lie. 
Come on, Jessie; has this Saratogy got to go too?" 

He rose and picked up my little valise. "Goodbye, youngsters, — some day your 
dish'll be right side up when it rains porridge. We'll go fishin' out to Big Creek an' 
leave Jessie at home." 

He helped me into the buggy and we drove slowly along the dusty road, — past grove, 
field and farm house. Men were unhitching and driving their tired horses to the barns; 
cows were grazing slowly along toward home; the setting sun cast long shadows before 
us, and the stillness of evening began to settle down. 

It was nearly dark when we turned in at the gate, passed the tall poplars, and came 
to the back door of the little white farm house. Old Shep bounded out to meet us, bark- 
ing joyfully, and leaping up at the horses. 

The old man tied the team, and then went into the kitchen with me. 

"Mary," he called, "where are you? Set down, Jessie. I expect she'll be here in a 
minute — guess she haint far off, from the looks of things.'' 

A lighted lamp stood on the clock shelf; the worn pine floor was scrubbed till it 
was almost as white as the rough calcimined walls and ceiling; the two little windows 
were curtained with white scrim, and red geraniums bloomed on the sills. A shining 
copper tea-kettle hissed and sputtered on the shining black cook stove; and the table, 
covered with a red and white checked cloth, was set for supper, a big gray cat climbed 
lazily down from the bright patchwork cushion on the wooden rocker, and rubbed 
against the old man's legs, purring loudly, as he stooped and stroked her glossy back. 

Then Mrs. Ashley came in. She was large and tall, with smoothly parted 

gray hair, and kind dark eyes. She put upon the table the glass pitcher of milk and the 
plate of butter she had broug-ht. 

"I was out in the cave, tending to the milk," she explained, "I did the milking myself 
to-night. I knew he'd putter around with those children up at your house till the very 
last minute. He'd ought to have little Nona to play with all the time — they're about the 
same age, but seeing he's brought you back with him, it's all right. You aren't looking 
any to strong yet." 

She kissed me and took my hat. "Take that rocker, Jessie, and make yourself 
at home. Nate, supper '11 be ready by the time you get that team put up." 

"All right, I'll be in quicker'n a cat can lick her ear. Jessie, do you s'pose she's 
goin to make me wash the dishes afterwards to pay up for her milkin'?" 

"Never mind," she called after him, "Jessie and I'll do that, seeing that we'll need a 
few dishes to eat our breakfast from. You broke near half of them last time you washed 

After supper was over and everything "redd up," as she said, Mrs. Ashley sat down 
near the table with her mending; the cat saw that I intended to keep the rocking chair, 
so she climed into my lap and went to sleep. Mr. Ashley had pulled ofif his boots, and 
sat in his stocking feet and shirt sleeves, tilted back against the wall on two legs of his 
chair. He ran his hand through his thick gray hair and chuckled to himself. 

"Now," he said, "if she'd only let a feller smoke in the house, I'd be all right, but if 
I do she jaws at me, like women always do when they set store by a man. You, bein' 
young, may not understand this, and I, bein' old, don't neither. She bosses me 'round 
like I was 'bout three years old." 

"Well, you act just about that old, — dont he, Jessie?— and my bossing don't do much 
good, either." 

"Guess I'm pretty good most of the time, aint I? Pretty meek — 'specially for a man 
that used to be a neighborhood terror when he was young. I was a caution to cats then. 
You don't look like you believed me, but jest ask your mother, she knows. Guess I'll have 
to tell Hello!'' Someone knocked and he went to the door. 

"Why, come in, Hawkins! Come right on in!" 

"Guess I can't, Nate, the baby's took sick and my wife wants someone to stay with 
her while I go for the doctor." 

"Mrs. Ashley rose, took her sun bonnet from its nail, and went to the door. 

"I'm ready this minute," she said, "Nate, don't you keep that child up too late 
listening to your everlasting yarns. You know where your old room is Jessie. Good- 
night, expect me when you see me." 

After they had gone, the old man tilted back in his chair again, and sat for some 
time without speaking. Finally he said, "I was going to tell you how I turned over a new 
leaf, wasn't I? or, rather how it come to need turnin'. S'posed your mother had told you 
all about it. 

"It was some where long about sixty-seven or eight, when we was livin' in a little 
log house on the prairie in Benton county, and I was pretty young, an' wild as a hawk. 
When I was sober I acted fairly decent, but that wasn't more'n two-thirds of the time 
in them days. I led Mary a life of it, an' dogs an' children kept out of my track, not bein' 
sure what I'd do next. 

"Me an' a feller named Hank Brown had managed, between us, to get a threshin' 
machine, an' every fall we'd go 'round threshin' from farm to farm, with a gang of hands 
to help us. 

"We were as tough a crowd as you'd want to see, an' didn't do the young boys we 

fell in with much good. We'd work like all possessed day time, an' then put in half our 
nights drinkin', swearin', playin' cards an' whoopin' things up generally. It was the 
ruin of us, soul an' body. 

"Sundays we'd hitch my mules to Hank's wagon, an' drive to Van Horne or Belle 
Plaine f'r a jug or two an' a keg of beer. There was about ten of us, and we'd go off in 
the woods somewhere, an' make daylight hideous. We'd keep up that sort of thing from 
quittin' time on Saturday, till 'way into Sunday night, an', of course, our tempers 
wouldn't be any too good on Monday. It was bad enough for any of us, but all the others 
were single, an' I had a wife at home an' I'd had a good mother once. Mother was one 
of those silent women that jest work away till they can't stand it no longer, an' then up 
an' die. She didn't knovy what she was doin' when she came West to teach, no raore'n 
she did when she married father. Between him an the prairie farmin' of them days, life 
was too much for her. So she died when I was only thirteen, and I was left to shift for 
myself jest when I needed her the most. Father hadn't any use for me, for I'd always 
stuck up for mother, an' once when he was rather more of a brute than usual, I'd 
knocked him down, boy 3s I was. So he went on farther west, leavin' me without a cent 
or a kind word only a change of clothes and a few things of mother's in her old trunk. 
Thetn blue plates on the shelf belonged to her mother back in New Hampshire. 

"Well I hired out to farmers 'round an' went to school some, winters. I'd think of 
mother an' try to make something of myself, but things seemed to be agin me, an' while 
I wasn't so bad then as some, I didn't amount to a hill of beans. It went on like this till 
I was 'bout twenty. 

"Then Mary came. 

"She was only eighteen, pretty as you'd want to see, an' smart as a trap. She was 
teachin' in Number Four, where your mother taught later, the same place where that 
preacher I'm comin' to, told me where I stood. 

"It was the toughest school in the county, an' the directors always had a hard time 
to get any one to tackle it. I was a sort of ringleader among the neighborhood boys, 
an' when I heard the new teacher was comin' out on top, the next thing was for me to 
start in the winter term to make trouble for her. 

"Well, I didn't do it. From the first minute when she looked at me with them black 
eyes of hern, she had me. I went to learnin'; I was as big as all out doors even then, 
but before spring the boys were callin' me 'Mary's little lamb,' an' I let them have their 
fun partly because they all knew I could thrash the whole pile if I wanted to, an' partly 
because Mary didn't like fightin'. 

"I quieted down, and all next year I worked like something was after me, farmin' all 
day, an' studyin' nights when I wasn't too tired to keep awake. Meanwhile I was goin' 
to see Mary every Sunday or oftener, an' I kept pesterin' her till at the end of another 
year she'd promised to marry me. Ever'body was surprised — me most of all. I don't 
rightly see, even yet, what made her do it. 

I'd saved a little money, an' she had some from her teachin'. We rented a small 
farm, an' felt like we owned the earth, it was the first home either of us had had since 
we were growed up. We had to work hard, but Mary suited me exactly, an' I guess I did 
her, for I jest tried myself at actin' like a man ought to. We wouldn't have changed 
places with the President, 'specially after the little feller came to us." 

The old man' chair came down to the floor again; he bent over with his elbows on 
his knees, propping his head up with his hands; he sat gazing at the floor. 

"I don't ever mention him in front of her," he went on, "She aint never got over 

loosin' him; you've probably noticed that she never makes much over children like I do — 
seems like she can't somehow. 

"Croup's quick, an' town was twenty miles away — an' when I got back with the 
doctor it was too late." 

He rose slowly and shuffled into the "room," and came back with a hig red plush 
album, He opened it, and showed me a faded tintype of a tiny curly headed boy in 
knickerbockers and blouse, with wide-open frightened eyes, and fat cheeks painted red 
by tho photographer. 

"He'd got just big enough to be out of dresses, an' go to town with me, an' ride 
'round on my back while I did up the chores. He wouldn't never be satisfied if he couldn't 
sit by me at meals, an' eat off my plate. An' the little 
feller never would go to sleep without I told him 'bout the 
little red hen that found a grain of wheat. His mother had 
to sit by an' laugh at jest the right places. 

"When he was gone, it seemed like the house was 
empty. I thought I hadn't nothin' to live for; I forgot 
Mary, an' got reckless, an' tried to go to the devil as fast 
as I could. She never complained, nor gave me a cross 
word. She got thinner, and worked harder than ever, an' 
I never saw her shed a tear, either when he died, nor 
afterwards till the time I'm comin' to pretty soon. 

"It was threshin' time, an' one day Hank an' me an' 
the rest of the crowd were loafin 'round in the shade awhile 
at noon before goin' at it again, when someone said that a 
travellin' preacher was goin' to hold forth that night in 
Number Four. We decided to go an' make things warm 
for him. Me an' Hank was to take the mourner's seat an' 
get converted to tickle the rest of the crowd, an' then we 
were goin' to break up the meetin', an' take the preacher to 
Hank's barn an' learn him to play cards and drink. We 
planned to make the lesson interestin' for him — an' us, too. MARY ASHLEY 

"I hadn't never been much of a church goer, an' had 
took a di.-like to preachers on account of one I knowed, a long faced, hypocritical chap 
in a long tailed coat, who always called me "brother" till I felt like knockin' him down. 
I wasn't fair to church people knowing only a few — Old Aunty Morgan for instance, 
who always wiped her eyes, and said 'This is a vale of tears, sister,' an' got more 
sorrow out of the consolations of religion, than anyone I ever see. 

"Well, that night we started out in high feather an' got in the front seats. There 
was several teams tied to the old fence when we got there, an' before long that school- 
house was jam-full of women an' children mostly. Mary came in with some neighbors 
an' sat right where I couldn't help seein' her. 

"It was a new thing for Hank an' me to be in church, an' everyone was crainin' their 
necks at us, knowin' we was up to no good. 

"It was growin' dark an' we were laughin' an' an' jokin' an' actin' up, an' lookin' 
round for the little meek faced man we expected to see. When it was almost eight 
Deacon Jones got up an' lighted the three or four smo'>y kerosene lamps; he hadn't any 
more than got back to his seat, before the door opened, an' we all turned in our seats an' 
dropped our jaws, an' stared. 

"A big yellow bearded man taller'n I was, hung his grey felt hat on a nail, marched 

up the aisle, and took the chair behind the desk. His eyes were some like blue fire, an' 
by the time he'd looked 'round the room twice, there wasn't a sound. I aint never seen 
a king-, but I guess I know about how one oug-ht to walk an' hold his head. 

"This man wore a rough gray suit an' a blue flannel shirt, an' his hands showed 
that he knew what work meant. 

"He got up an' came an' stood down on the floor in front of the desk; before he got 
half way in his first prayer, I felt shaky, an' by the time he said 'amen', I had concluded 
not to get converted not that night, anyway, an' Hank, 
beside me never moved. 

"Then the preacher asked everyone to join in, an' 
began to sing, 

'There were ninety an' nine that safely lay 
In the shelter of the fold.' 

"I've heard singin but not any like that; a little 
curly headed girl of three or four got away from her 
mother an' toddled up an' held on to him, he stooped 
an' took her up in his arms, but the music went right 
on. I began to feel like I was the hundredth sheep, out 
on the hills away, a mighty long way from any decent 
company. When he got through the last line he set the 
child down again, an' began his sermon — if that's 
what it was — for we didnt get any twaddle, I can tell 

"He didn't holler any, nor jump around, he talked 
kind of quiet, like one man to another, but you could 
have heard him anywhere in the biggest church 
I don't know what his text was or whether he had 
one or not, He told us about the miners that he 
worked with most of his life — things he'd seen himself that made me glad I worked above 
ground an' showed me the power of right livin'. I can't begin to tell how I felt, but I 
know I'd given most anything to get out of my own company — it seemed so bad. 
I didn't see no more beauty in sin — nor fun, either' an' it didn't help me any to look down 
an' see the 'M. H. ' I'd cut in the desk when first I knew Mary, an' then over at her pale face, 
an' think how far I'd got from her. I felt like I'd been dug up for a weed, an' some one 
was shakin' the dirt off my roots. Hank was a-squirmin' like a caterpillar on a hot 

"When the preacher stopped, you could have heard a pin drop. He began to sing again: 

'Abide with me, fast falls the eventide. 
The darkness deepens, Lord with me abide.' 

"And then the meetin' was over. Folks began to stand up and speak to each other. 
Hank an' the rest of the crowd sneaked for the door, but I couldn't move somehow. I 
set still a minute, an' then I went straight up an' shook hands with that preacher. We 
didn't need to say nothin, an' he had the sense to know it, but I haint forgot the look he 
gave me to this day. 

"I struck out home alone across the fields, an' got to bed as quick as I could. I heard 
the Jones' leave Mary at the gate, an' when she came in I pretended to be asleep. I 
didn't get a wink of sleep that night, an' a different man got up in the morning. 

"I puttered 'round at the chores, as long as I could, doin' things I didn't need to at 

all. I hated to go in, an' still I wanted to let Mary know some way. It took me a long- 
time to wash, out on the porch, but at last I came in an' sat down to breakfast. 

"She was just across the table from me but she might just as well have been a 
thousand miles off, an' it was my own fault. I wanted to tell her I'd changed but I 
didn't know how to begin, an' sat there lookin' at my plate. 

"As she passed me on her way to the stove, I looked up an' met her eyes — I couldn't 
stand it no longer. 

"I jumped to my feet an' grabbed her by the arm. 

" 'Mary,' I says, 'for God's sake an' little Johnny's don't look at at me like that 
you'll never have reason to as long as you live, Mary', an' I took her into my arms, an' 
told her how it was. 

"I never saw Mary cry before nor since — it aint her way, nor mine either, but I 

guess it was good for both of us, an' if only we could a-kept the little feller but there ! 

I hear wheels; you'd better be runnin' to bed, or I'll catch it for lettin' you set up so late." 

The old man rose and lighted a lamp for me, he opened the stairway door, and bade 
me goodnight. When he had closed it, and I was going slowly up to the quaint white 
little room they called mine, I heard him winding the clock and then his voice as he 
spoke to Mrs. Ashley who had just come in.

A Lesson irv FrencK 

It was the last recitation of the colleg'e year in Senior French. 

"That will do, Mademoiselle Hodgson," said the little professor, "I see that we shall 
not have time," and regretfully he turned, one by one, the pag-es remaining, "I had hoped 
that we might finish the book, but I suppose we have read far enough to guess what the 
end will be. However, for their own satisfaction I would advise the class to glance over 
the last chapter." 

He closed the book, and laid it on the desk, in front of him. 

"Now, to sum up," he continued, in his mild voice, "we have this year read IvCS 
Femmes Savantes, Iv'Avare, Athalie, and extracts from Daudet, Descartes, Pascal, La 
Rochefoucauld, Bossuet and L,a Bruyere — which has been a very good year's work, indeed. 
It is a great deal of reading. I hope," he added gallantly, "that you have enjoyed it as 
much as I." 

His eyes wandered from seat to seat, and finally came to rest for an instant (as they 
were apt to do) on the girl in the front row. To-day, the professor observed, she was 
wearing a pink shirt-waist, with a green ribbon at her throat. The professor vaguely 
approved of the combination. Her cheeks seemed so nice and pink, too, just matching 
the waist. 

"Next year," he resumed. "I shall give a course in French drama, which I am sure 
those of you who may attend will like. I have arranged a number of new courses for 
next year — " 

Here he again paused, hesitating as to what to say farther. Thus surveying the 
faces before him, he was most kindly disposed toward every person present. Even 
toward Nash, in the back row, who had blandly cribbed his perfect lessons, or else had 
miserably flunked. Nash, to whom French — greatest of languages! — was simply one of 
many credits necessary for graduation. 

The section was exhibiting tokens of impatience. The girl in the pink waist dropped 
her pencil, and laughed as it rolled beyond her reach. The luxurious June air drifted in 
through the open windows. If the recitation was over why not get out? Who cared 
what was to happen in French next year! 

"This is all, I believe," said the professor. "It — it has been a pleasant year. Per- 
haps we shall meet again, somewhere. Passez." 

Nash promptly picked up the errant pencil, restored it with a jest, and walked away, 
laughing and chatting, with its owner. The rest of the section left, some ahead of, some 
behind, the couple. The professor was alone. 

He arose and stood at a window, looking out upon the campus and seeing it not. He 
was thinking, thinking, and feeling very much forsaken 

Never before had it been so hard for him to part with a section. Of course it was the 
section! Sections differed widely in personnel, and this had been by far the most agree- 
able section he had known during his connection with the college. 

How pretty and fresh Miss Lawrence was, in that waist. He imagined that it was 
a shade which few girls could wear— but then Miss Lawrence had rare taste Probably 
she was aware that her cheeks were of the same color. 

Pshaw, how foolish in an old bachelor ( the professor was all of forty ) to have such 
an attachment for a section! To the members he was only the magistrate by whom they 
were condemned or liberated, and having been liberated they were only too glad to escape 
from his jurisdiction. 

The thrill of Commencement was in the atmosphere. Standing here at the window 
the professor drank deep of the season's wondrous sentiment, and sighed. 

Once more he muttered "Pshaw!"; and energetically thrust his hands into his trous- 
ers' pockets. 

With sudden abruptness he turned, and placing himself at his desk fumbled idly with 
a pile of examination papers. At this graduating time introspection may be appropriate 
for the pupil, but not for the master. It interferes with his work, and must be cowed. 

Was it fate, or natural selection, that the first paper to which he applied for relief 
resolved itself into an exercise by Miss Lawrence, in composition? The professor did not 
need to seek the name. He recognized the writing — a large, hurried script, bristling 
with sharp angles, where "r's" were "i's," and "c's" were "e's," and "n's were sacri- 
ficed to the glory of the "u's." 

"J'aime — ," had written Miss Lawrence. 

The professor passed the sentence, came back to it, again resolutely put it behind 
him, pushed on rapidly— less rapidly — faltered - read ahead spasmodically — fiercely 
fought against his impulse — said "Pshaw!" — and yielded. 

Shyly, covertly, like one who fears detection in the act, with his pencil he made an 
alteration in the irresistible line. 

"Je t'aime — 

Breathlessly he scanned the result. Ah, this was better; and although to a cold- 
blooded grammarian the sentence offered a redundancy of accusatives, Miss Lawrence 
having declared that she loved a horse, or two story house, or pair of shoes, or something 
else equally as absurd, the professor chose to shut his eyes to the unpleasant, and to see 
only the beautiful. 

The sentence was now his, not hers — and so far as he read was a model of popular 

Miss Lawrence never would see these last examination papers. She would be ignor- 
ant that a man, and not a machine, had corrected them. They were a safe confessional. 
"Je t'aime — 

But supposing she did see them — would she guess? Would she consider the correc- 
tion melely an error of the head, or would she interpret is as an impertiment mistake of 
the heart? 

Staring at the sentence — his sentence — already the professor had taken the stand, 
and with a girl in a pink waist as his accuser was pleading his own defense, when a 
smart footfall recalled him from fancy to fact. 

Here was she herself, as though conjured into life by the wand of his imagination. 

He started guiltily, like a boy caught scrawling in the sand certain adorable but 
secret initials. 

"I left my handkerchief," explained Miss Lawrence, wondering at his confused gaze. 

"Ah, pardon me. Mademoiselle," he said, hastening to assist her. But she antici- 
pated him, and lifting it from the chair where it had been lying, half concealed, thrust 
it into her belt. 

"Shall you be back next year, mademoiselle?" He inquired, as she moved toward 
the doorway. 

"Oh, no!" she replied, astonished. "You see I graduate." 

"Yes," assented the professor, lamely; "still, I thought that — that you might want 
to do some special work — in French, for instance. You know you have made such splen- 
did progress with French," he added, apologetically. 

"But I'm going to be married," confided the girl, gaily, with a blush. 

"Oh!" responded the professor (now feeling very old and very, tired); "allow me to 
congratulate you — and him." 

"Thank you," said the girl. Then, over her shoulder, from the hall she cried, 
proudly: "It's Mr. Nash." 

The professor seated himself at his desk, and rested his head on his hands. Pres- 
ently he sought among the litter in a drawer, and finding a rubber slowly and firmly 
erased the corrections which he had inserted only a moment before. 

Ostensibly, the performance was a success. The marks of the soft lead were easily 
effaced. But there yet remained to be dealt with the heart, and here, alas, the pencil 
wielded by memory is indelible. — Edwin Li. Sabin, '92. 

His Weak Point 

In a manner most terrific 

He used phrases scientific; 
He could talk of pterodactyles and of saurions galore; 

He could easily knock silly 

Micrococcus and bacilli. 
And he'd tell you things about 'em that you never knew before. 

He was great on hydrostatics. 

Orthodontia and prismatics. 
He could make a spiel in Choctaw, or in Sanskrit or in Greek; 

He could lecture on ranenomics 

Or the ethiques of gastromiques, 
And the folks 'd flock to hear him whenever he'd speak. 

But he made a woful showing 

When it came to common knowing. 
For they'd work a soupbone on him for a piece of sirloin steak; 

So the grocer and the baker. 

And at last, the undertaker. 
Took his fortune in betwee 'em and divided up the take.

But Murphy looked on with pout. 

Bow wow Annabel Gow 

You Jamie's like other folk. 
Although to all t'was plain last year 

That the Annual thought him a joke. 

Young Lafe Young, 

May his praises be sung, 
For a studious soul was he. 

He studied by night. 
He studied by day, 

A studious man you'll agree. 

Where have you been, little man, little man; 

I've been to the brewery to rush the can, 
L/ittleman, little man — why, don't you know 

You'll sure be called up for doing so. 

When 'er I see Goldie Beebe 

Come smiling along at me. 
The only thing for me to do. 

Is to let Miss Beebe be. 

Sieg, the Delta, and Ann fell out, 

And what do you think t'was all about. 

He loved Anna D. and she loved John B. 

And that was the reason they could not agree. 

N. B. — As we go to press we are informed that this is 
not true.

Little Jimmy Berryhill 

Came to U. of I. 

To gain a reputation, 

And to capture honors high. 

He must be an observing boy 
For he exclaimed one day 
In speaking of sororities, 
In quite a shocking way: 

"The Kappa girls may be all right 
There's one that's mighty sweet — 
Yet, so far as I can see, I think 
The rest are indiscreet." 

'Tis very sad — 'tis hard to bear — 
The girls are growing sore. 
Yet by degrees, he may approve 
Of just one Kappa more. 

— Miss Kappa Kappa Gamma.

Chronicles of Georgvis Securvdus 


1. And it came to pass in the second 
year of Prexy the Great's reign, that he 
smote upon his breast saying, — 

2. Verily I say unto you, why should I 
rule over the Women of the land? There- I 
fore will I appoint me a Dean that she 
may judge the Women of the Tribe of the 
Seenyers, and the Juneyours, and the 
Sophs, and the Freshies, even as doth 
Dean Kurier or Dean Mideltone of the 
Tribe of the Mediks or Dean Hosfoorde of 
the Tribe of the Dentts. 

3. And Prexy annointed The Young to 
be Dean over the Women. 

4. And in the ninth month which is 
called Sept. did she begin her rule and to 
this day she judgeth among the Daughters 
of the Land. 


1. On the eleventh day of the tenth 
month which is called Oct. Prexy sent 
and said, — 

2. Be it even as I have said, let all 
Women assemble at the Great Hall which 
is called Klos unless some dread disease 
smitheth them down or some miracle 
shall detain them for I their mighty ruler 
have so ordered. 

3. Then at the hour which is calledFive, 
did the hosts of the U. of I. gather to- 
gether on the thirteenth day of the month 
which is called Oct. and in the large num- 
bers did they come to the Temple which 
is called Y. W. C. A. 

4. Then did Prexy the Great ascend the 
Mount and say, — 

5. Verily let all maidens answer unto 
their names. Yea, lest my wrath fall upon 
them unjustly. 

6. Then did he step down into their 
midst and say, — 

7. Oh Daughters of this Institution 
which is called The Univaircity, why 
should ye be a reproach upon the land? 
Do ye therefore see to it, lest ye may seem 
undignified or be longer known in the land 
as Phreeks. 

8. Receive not the Sons of the Tribes 
into thy abode after the tenth hour in the 

9. Enter ye not into that realm of your 
landlady's abode which is called Kittchin. 

10. Go ye not in twos or threes unat- 
tended by that dignitary who is called 
Shaperonge to those Temples which are 
called Chaaptter Howses. 

11. Dance ye not nor make merry after 
the hour of Twelve, lest ye be considered 
of the Tribe which is called Phast or Kon- 
try lyooutts. 

12. Revere always that old and ancient 
custom of taking unto yourselves those 
persons who are called Paatroneeses at 
your great gatherings known as Hopp of 
the Tribe of Seenyers, Promm of the 
Juneyours, Kottillon of the Sophs and 
even at the Banquet of the Freshies. 

13. See to it that ye be numbered 
among the worshippers at the Shrine of 

14. Expect ye not always to enter the 
A Rena of Aath Letics accompanied by a 
Son of the Tribes. 

15. Desire not at every function a 
Chairiott and a Gaarlande of Rowses. 

16. Take unto yourselves interest in the 
assembly known as Fisykal Tranyng that 
the Grate Konsil which has gathered down 
in the Place known as Deemoyne may 
erect unto the 'Vaircity a Temple known 
as Jim. 

17. Call not this great Temple located 
in the spot called Kampus, "Schule.'' 

18. Be ye henceforth known at this 
place called Univaircity as Women. 

19. Yea verily, this mighty ruler known 
as Prexy the Great spoke unto the Assem- 
bled Tribes of Women of the Univaircity 
until the going down of the sun and even 
until the rising of the stars. 

20. Then the hosts dispersed and went 
to their various Tribes humbled and sub- 
missive and so they remain until this day.

"The point which I am about to make iss a very importandt one. To my mind it iss 
the key to the whole situation, I wish that the class would take notes upon the remarks 
which I make in order that you may get clearly in mind the essential, the fundamental — 
a — er — the importandt (gesture) facts with regard to the matter under consideration, 
(gesture^. And right here I might say with regard to taking notes — I am not particular 
that the student shall take notes in any particular form — er — in any set manner. You 
know there are two or three ways of taking notes. As I say, there are two or three 
ways of taking notes — indeed, everyone— everyone, I suppose, hass a different way — you 
might say that every student has a way of his own — for, of course, in such matters we do 
not act uniformly. Now some, you know, take rough notes on scratch paper with a 
pencil and then copy them more carefully after they get home. I prefer to make my own 
notes permanent in the first place — in that way you save time and effort. 

"But, as I say, I am not particular how you take your notes from my lectures, just so 
you get the main, er — (gesture), the vital poindts of the subject. But I am tigressing.

A Puzzle 

A certain co-ed at the University of Iowa was invited by note at the eleventh hour to 
go to the Minnesota Preliminary debate. She received two invitations and had time to 
answer neither. The landlady was instructed thusly: 

"When Mr. R comes, tell him I am not in; but when Mr. Xyz calls, bring him 


Mr. R and Mr. Xyz, coming from opposite directions happened to reach the 

door at the same time.

Orv the Crossing 

They were coming- from a class at Close Hall. He was a tall, slender young- man, 
wearing a gray overcoat, and a light gray fedora, gold rimmed eye-glasses rather hid his 
fine dark eyes. She was a small girl whose stature was not heightened by a short skirt 
and a golf cape, and she wore a little plaid cap that matched the cape. 

"Which way are you going?" he asked, "Let me carry your books." 

"You'll be sorry," she answered laughingly, as she handed them to him. "You can 
never carry them without spilling them." 

The books were of assorted sizes — a large note book, two small tablets, a little 
German prose and a thin French reader. Sticking out of the last were some loose pages 
of notes. With a superior air of capability he tucked them under his arm, and turned 
across Dubuque St. It was very muddy, and they had to pick their way carefully. On 
the corner stood a crowd of students, and the girl noticed one especially, with a large I on 
his old gold sweater. They had just started over the other crossing when that unruly 
pile of books slipped and fell into the mud, the loose sheets fluttering gaily about in 
every direction. 

"Fumble!" came in a chorous from the corner. 

"Hold 'era Iowa!" some one cheerfully shouted. And the girl turned, to see the young 
man, his usually calm face just a trifle flushed, wiping the mud from the cover of the 
little French book. C. B. J.

Extract From Report of the R.iver a-nd 
Harbor Committee. House Report 
V. 55tK Congress. 1st Session 

Mr. Chairman: — I am to speak to you of a land which is the home of the daisy; a 
land where grows the sweet potato; a land of fertile fields and beautiful hamlets — Harri- 
son county, Iowa, the garden spot of America ! ! ! ! 

The simple mannered inhabitants of this heaven-blessed land cultivate their fields 
and reap their golden harvests under the special favor of Providence. Flocks of sheep 
brouse the tender grasses of its beautiful pastures. Heaven has conspired to make it a 
second garden of Eden, a dwelling place fit for gods ! ! 

Through its productive fields and grass-carpeted valleys flows a sparkling torrent — 
the Missouri river — watering the fields of the farmer and quenching the thirst of the 
flocks which graze its banks. This beautiful river, a blessing in time of drouth, when 
the heavy rains and melting snows swell its volume, becomes a menace to the inhabitants 
of Harrison county and threatens to carry away a portion of its productive soil by cutting 
away its east bank. The simple country folk who till the hill sides and valleys about it 
call this turbulent mountain stream the "Christal River" 

The Congressman from Missouri interrupts: 

"Now hold on there young feller, aint you lettin' your oratory carry you too far? I 
live next to the Mizzoury river further down an' in my section they call it the 'Big 
Muddy.' " 


When to history class I go 
I always feel quite dumb. 

The reason is quite plain, you know, 
The class is taught by Plum. 

And as I mount the stairs so steep, 
And enter through the door 

I pray, if I should go to sleep, 
O Lord, don't let me snore. 


Like ©L FresKman 

Freshman Stiles as he drops a penny 
in the mail box: "This isn't the brand I 
generally chew but I guess it will do as 
well as pepsin." 


S. U. I.. Old I o w 


Glory, Hawkeyes, in your state, — 

S. U. I., Old Iowa! 
Rich in wealth, in honor great, — 
Rich in wealth but richer still 
In her sons of brain and brawn 
From her rolling prairies drawn, 
Theirs the ardor that doth thrill 
S. U. I., Old Iowa! 

CHORUS. Hawkeye, hawkeye, rah, rah, rah! 
'Varsity of Iowa! 
On victorious, never die, 
Old Gold, glorious S. U. I! 

Culture's haven. Learning's seat, 

S. U. I., Old Iowa! 
Art and science in her meet; 
Modern wit and cloistral lore, 
Contest strong, the light swift race. 
Mind and body join in grace. 
None can know but to adore 

S. U. I., Old Iowa! 

Hath the nation need of men? 

S. U. I., Old Iowa! 
Eager, will respond again; 
Floating o'er her Doric dome, 
Ever doth Old Glory wave. 
Made more sacred by our brave. 
Taught within this classic home, 

S. U. I., Old Iowa. 

Universal in her lore, 

S. U. I., Old Iowa! 
Breadth of thought she has and more, 
All humanity 's her creed. 
World democracy her goal, 
Man truth-freed from pole to pole. 
High her task, God give her speed, 

S. U. I., Old Iowa!

Tacsimile of Cran$=l11i$$i$$ippi Exposition Diploma. 

Cbc ibm award was made in competition with all first-class Scaks, no cheap or unreliable 

Scales were allowed to be entered. 

the Chicago Scales were tbe Official Scales of the exposition. 


facsimile of Cran$°mi$$l$$lppl Exposition 6old medal. 

^ht Chicago Scale Company have been manufacturing Scales for nearly half a 
century, and their Hay, Grain, Stock or Wagon Scales have no equal. They were the 
Official Scales at the great World's Fair held at Chicago in 1893 as well as at the 
Trans-Mississippi International Exposition held in Omaha in 1898, and the Greater 
American Exposition at Omaha in 1899, also at all Fat Stock Shows held in the West, 
including the greatest Fat Stock Show ever held anywhere at Dexter Pavillion, Union 
Stock Yards, Chicago, December, 1900. 

It is poor economy to buy a cheap article of irresponsible concerns, when the best 
article can be bought at almost the same price of a concern that is perfectly responsible, 
and who will make any imperfections good at any time. Thousands of competent 
users testify to their superiority over other makes, and to the losses sustained by using 
cheap scales. 

The unanimous opinion of competent judges who are unprejudiced ought to have 
more weight with persons who are not familiar with the latest improvements of Scales 
or other articles, than the opinion of salesmen who can see no good qualities in any 
machines except those they represent. The Steel Frames furnished for these Scales are 
the most substantial and will last a life time.

All the materials used in this celebrated 
line, are the best obtainable at any price.

Thus, purchasers of Walk-Overs get the re- 
sult of the greatest experi-^nce, combined 
with the best and largest facilities. 

All Walk-Overs made from American 
stock are sold for $3.50. In order to main- 
tain the present high standard on our im-
